“That’s a wrap” they shouted at the end of 34th Flower Festival where about two thousand people visited St Peter’s Church for the film-themed event.
Ron Jeffries, a church member, called the festival one of the “best ever” and praised the theme which had encouraged people to produce plant arrangements linked to famous films.
He said: “It is always difficult to estimate how many people came but I reckon that there was about 2,000 over the weekend.
“I think it was one of the best weekends we have ever had.”
Films depicted in the arrangements included Gone With The Wind, Carousel, Evan Almighty and Mary Poppins.
“The displays were most dramatic and the subjects connected to them - people were thrilled to bits by it all,” added Mr Jeffries.
“We had a few showers on the Sunday but that did not put people off coming.”
