A FLORAL fundraiser bursting with the lyrical lines of some of the world’s finest poets is being held this bank holiday weekend.

More than 40 flower displays on the theme of Poetry will be on show at Kendal’s Stricklandgate Methodist Church from Saturday-Monday, May 3-5.

Works by Wordsworth, Walter de la Mare, John Keats, Samuel Coleridge, Margaret Cropper, Rudyard Kipling’s If and many more will be read during the three-day event, with money raised split between the church and North West Air Ambulance.

Stalls will include flowers, crafts and cakes.

Open Saturday and Monday, 10am-4pm; Sunday, 12.30pm-4.30pm.
