Brave bears in the belfry

Have your say

Teddy bears will be leaping from the tower of Misson Parish Church when it stages its annual Patronal and Flower Festival this Saturday from 10am to 4pm and Sunday from 11 to 4pm.

A special Father’s Day Service takes place on Saturday at 4pm while on Sunday there will be a Teddy Bear Parachute Jump from the top of the church tower. All teddies will be awarded a special certificate on completion of their jump.

Teddies and their families are invited to bring along their tea to a picnic in the grounds of St John the Baptist.

Flower displays will reflect phrases from the Bible that are now everyday language.
