“Lots of people are taking their daily exercise walking past the church and we wanted to send a message of hope in these difficult times.”

The foliage is real and the flowers are silk and provided by choir leader Iverna Moss and a helpful eBay trader.

To the side of the porch there is also a St Mary’s Easter cross by churchwarden Lisa Turner and a beautiful Easter garden made by 11-year-old Catherine Follows.
