Holy Trinity Church in Duncton celebrates its 150th anniversary this weekend with a flower festival (Saturday and Sunday, July 2-3)

The church will be decorated by members of the village community with the theme ‘garden flowers’.

There are a host of other events also planned on Saturday and Sunday to celebrate including a village drinks party, a celebration service on Sunday attended by the Archdeacon of Horsham, Fiona Windsor, and a celebration service for Duncton school. Pupils are pictured here last year inspecting the 14th century church bell which was restored and reinstalled in the bell tower.

The church will be open from 10am-1pm on Saturday for visitors to see the flower displays - there will be no entrance fee.
