Three successful events have raised more than £800 for village groups.

Spring into Summer - Anne-Marie Snowdon, a well known and experienced floral artist, gave a delightful demonstration of flower arranging in the village hall, which was enjoyed by an audience of 65 enthusiasts.

Organised by the St Mary’s Village Church Committee, Anne-Marie presented five delightful ways of arranging a variety of flowers, including two double arrangements.

She gave lots of hints and tips as she worked and all seven were then available as prizes in the raffle.

Afternoon tea rounded off the event, which raised £375 for St Mary’s Church.

Open Church - Proceeds upwards of £200 was raised when St Mary’s was transformed under the theme ‘Barkwith Remembers’ with displays and photographs from years gone by during the Churches Festival Weekend.

There were pictures of people and happenings in East Barkwith, and surrounding villages, together with memories of the first Guide and Scout units led by the late Miss Denny of Barkwith House, the Bowling Club, also at Barkwith House, the village school and the First World War.

Plant sale - There was a big rush of customers hoping to get the best choice of bargains when the Barkwith and District Gardeners Association held their annual plant sale in the village hall.

There was a wide variety to choose from, all grown, potted on and donated by members.

And they were delighted to have raised £250.
