St Leonard's Church in Flamstead is in need of some repairs

A Winter Flower Festival on the theme of Narnia, from the famous CS Lewis children’s books, will be held on November 24-26 at St Leonard’s Church.

Walk through the wardrobe at the entrance to the church and you will enter a magical world of winter displays created by a team of designers and arrangers who worked on the acclaimed St Albans Abbey Flower Festival.

The festival is part of a major fundraising initiative with the church – home to rare medieval murals – facing a bill close to £1million due to water damage to the roof timbers and walls as well as an infestation of death watch beetle.
