BEACONSFIELD's St Mary & All Saints Church came alive in a mix of vibrant colours at the weekend as it staged its annual Walk of Life flower festival. Hundreds of people took in the sights and smells of the impressive flower show that boasted different displays that celebrated all aspects of life. Church committee member Tamara Reading was delighted with how the event went, saying: "On-lookers told us that the flowers were fit for the Chelsea flower show.” A Labyrinth was the main attraction of the whole show and was centred in the body of the church.
