A CHURCH in Crowthorne will be celebrating the very best of Britain with a special flower festival next month.

St John The Baptist in Waterloo Road will use the three-day festival to raise funds for COATS and Hope Zone, two local charities that work with old and young people in Crowthorne. The Best of British festival runs from Saturday, July 14 to Monday, July 16 and throughout the weekend there will be occasional musical interludes. The festival includes an exhibition by members of the Wokingham Embroiderers’ Guild, among others. Refreshments and light lunches will be available and on Sunday evening there will be a special Songs of Praise service. It is open from 10am to 6pm on Saturday, from noon to 6pm on Sunday and then from 10am to 4pm on Monday.
