Floral display in Hoylake, Wirral 2013

RSS

undefinedHoylake's beautiful parish church is set to become even lovelier this coming summer when a flower festival is staged there. St Hildeburgh's will be bedecked with blossoms in 30 displays throughout the church.

The town’s World War I memorial – honouring the 168 Hoylake men who died, which stands in St Hildeburgh's wooded grounds – will also be specially decorated.

The festival will be themed ‘The Glory of Creation’ and will be opened by Esther McVey, MP for Wirral West and Minister for the Disabled, on Friday 21 June. The event will last through to Sunday 23 June. Refreshments will be available. 

The event is being widely supported, with the floral art societies of Wirral, Hoylake, New Brighton and Heswall joining the members of St Hildeburgh's Ladies’ Guild to create the arrangements.

St Hildeburgh’s Church is at the corner of The King’s Gap and Stanley Road, Hoylake (opposite the Green Lodge). Festival times will be: Friday (ticket only) 7- 9.30 pm; Saturday 10am-5pm; Sunday 11am-4pm, followed by Songs of Praise.
