Hoxne Church Harvest Flower Festival

Held in the church in Saturday 3rd October and Sunday 4th October this was an opportunity for some members of Hoxne Heritage Group to demonstrate their flower arranging skills using the theme of harvests through the ages.

Using a variety of autumn flowers, foliage and other ‘accessories’ the display attempted to give an insight into how harvesting has changed notably through the equipment used such as scythes, the use of quern stones and how crops have evolved/ changed.

A different interpretation of harvesting was also shown with the aid of a metal detector used for ‘harvesting’ the lost artefacts of previous local inhabitants. Thus emphasising just one of the many tasks of Hoxne Heritage Group in it’s quest to keep the past alive and meaningful to not only present but also future generations.
