Gavinton Flower Festival

The Langton and Lammernuir Kirk have held a flower festival on the theme of ‘creation’, transforming the church in Gavinton into a series of tableaux representing the stages in the biblical story of the creation.

Visitors entered the church through a doorway shrouded in darkness, emerging into a splendid scene where the sun, moon and stars gazed down on rocks, water, birds, fish, animals, plants all displayed among a dazzling array of flowers.

After their tour, visitors were entertained to tea and home baking in the church hall.

A lot of skill and effort by the members of the congregation gave many folk an enjoyable experience and a much-needed boost to church funds.
