The 2011 Flower Festival, organised by The Friends of St George’s, will be held in St George’s Church over the weekend of 11–12 June. The theme is 20th Century life in Little Thetford and we have ten different subjects, including, the school, the church, the chapel, the Womens Institute, transport, the village feast, farming, as well as the two world wars.
The event will be open from 10:00 am and close at 5:00 pm on Saturday followed by a talk given by local historian Mike Petty starting at 7:30 pm. The talk is titled “20th century village life”. Tickets are £5 including a complimentary glass of wine. On Sunday the festival opens at 11:00 am and closes at 4:00 pm. A Songs of Praise service will follow at 4:30 pm.
All the proceeds from the weekend will be used for repairs to this grade II* listed building. We presently have works in excess of £17,000 in the pipeline, with work hopefully starting in July 2011.
