A CHURCH was in full bloom to mark the Queen’s 60 years on the throne.

The Flower Guild at Doncaster Minster put together a floral display entitled Jubilee Flowers, which was open to the public over three days.

The displays took on a range of patriotic themes from the Union Flag to a basket of flowers with a corgi hidden away between the blooms and even a crown creation.

The floral festival was part of an array of events on at the minster over the Jubilee week, which also featured a concert with performances by the Shirebrook Miners Welfare Unison Band and Kenfig Hill and District Male Voice Choirs.

The celebrations will end this Saturday when the Friends of Doncaster Minster will hold an afternoon tea from 2pm to 5pm at 10A Ivanhoe Close in Sprotborough.

Tickets cost £5 with money going to the minster.
