TWO of the original Calendar Girls officially opened the flower festival at St Mary's Church, Carleton.

Chris Clancy and Beryl Bamforth were guests of honour at the preview of the three-day festival, which had the theme, Our Heritage: a Celebration in Flowers of Notable Anniversaries.

The festivities also included a special Songs of Praise service, after which the arrangements were auctioned.

Our picture shows flower designers Ann Harding and Pat Daley, who selected the flower arrangers who created the breathtaking designs, Judith Windle, co-ordinator of the festival planning committee, committee member Susan Holmes and the vicar of St Mary's, the Rev David Williams.

The group are standing by an arrangement, which represents York Minster, which was damaged by fire when a bolt of lightning struck 30 years ago - on June 9, 1984.
