Scores of visitors are expected to flock to an event to celebrate the beginnings of spring at a pretty picture postcard Doncaster village this weekend.

The annual Snowdrop Festival staged in Kirk Bramwith, near Barnby Dun, raises much-needed cash for the Norman village church, St Mary’s in Top Lane.

The churchyard is covered by a carpet of the dainty blooms at this time of year around which the festival is organised.

Plant and refreshment stalls will also boost the fundraising effort for St Mary’s church.

A church spokesman said: “I think the festival has been going for more than 30 years and it is popular every year.

“We get visitors from far and wide across the whole region.

“People always say how they enjoy their day out.

“Please come along and visit the church and have a look at what is on.”

Members of the public are invited to attend the festival on Saturday and Sunday, between 10am and 4pm, on both days.

Along with all the events, refreshments including tea, coffee and soft drinks will also be served throughout the weekend.
