THE annual Westmill village fete will be taking place on Saturday - and one of the themes will be Beatrix Potter.

The Tales of Beatrix Potter will be displayed by an array of flowers arranged by a Chelsea Flower Show exhibitor.

St Mary's Church will also adopt the theme and will be dressed by a team of flower arrangers.

There will also be a variety of stalls and side-shows, a jazz band, jugglers, a bird of prey display and a dog show.

On Sunday, visitors will have the opportunity to buy plants and flowers in an auction after a Songs of Praise service at 5pm.

Fete chairman Ray Partridge said: "Our summer fete will be special this year because of the flower festival."

The dog show will start at noon with the official show opening at 1pm.
