St John's Jubilee Flower Festival and Fun Day

It was hard work, but it was worth it.  Pauline Mantle, the Stansted Flower Ladies, (lead by Jean Robinson) and many other creative people from within the Stansted Community and the Benefice came together to organise our wonderful Flower Festival to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II in June 2012.
Below are just a selection of the arrangements which visitors enjoyed during the Jubilee weekend.


A big thank you to all those people and organisations who made the Flower Festival a huge success!
