The Church of the Good Shepherd in Four Marks hosted a four-day free flower festival called Our Queen throughout the Platinum Jubilee weekend.

There were more than 60 exhibits depicting the Queen’s reign and her patronages.

As well as traditional flower displays, craftspeople produced work including quilting, embroidery, crochet, origami, watercolours, silk painting, sugar craft and modelling.

One of the exhibits placed a display of flowers next to a computer screen showing a picture of the Queen from each year of her reign, the length of which meant the last few pictures had to be printed out beneath those which fitted on the screen.

Others included a floral map of the UK on a Union Jack flag, a selection of hats decorated with flowers, the Queen’s horse and corgis and an Imperial State Crown made from flowers.

There were plenty of other Platinum Jubilee events to enjoy in Four Marks.

From Friday until Sunday there was a pop-up museum and a children’s art exhibition at Four Marks Village Hall.

Thursday saw a family fun day at Four Marks Golf Club which featured the lighting of the village’s beacon and a Queen-themed treasure hunt.

Friday night featured the Platinum Party at the Pavilion, with live music and a barbecue.

And on Sunday, Four Marks took part in The Big Lunch, with villagers taking picnics to share with their friends, neighbours and families while celebrating the Jubilee.

Four Marks Parish Council established a working group to plan and create the events.
