The final fundraising amount was over £4800 which allowed us to make a generous donation of almost £500 to FIND (Families in Need Ipswich).
This amount of fundraising makes a real difference to a small village like Flowton and where essential repairs are required to our only community building.
Thank you for supporting us.
We had a lot of enquiries about our gluten free flapjack recipe over the weekend so here it is:
Tin 18x30cm, preheat oven 190 deg C / 170 deg C fan
170g unsalted butter
110g Demerara sugar
55g golden syrup
225g gluten free oats
Melt butter, sugar and golden syrup. Stir in oats. Bake 20-30mins until just about golden brown.
Leave to cool in tin. Cut, serve and eat.

Well, what a fantastic weekend we had at the Flowton in Flower event. The sun shone, it didn’t rain for a change and we were inundated with visitors. Over 500 tickets were sold, with many people coming both days over the weekend.
The military vehicle display and the Gate Farm egg demonstrations drew the crowds, as did the flower festival and local history exhibition in the church. We made and served almost 350 ploughman’s lunches and cream teas and served gallons of tea!
And we loved having you all! This website has been updated with many of the pictures of the weekend and the flowers so do take a look.
To all our residents and those who so graciously put their gardens on display for our guests to visit, to the flower arrangers, to the refreshment team, our chief sign man, the church team and all the volunteers – thank you for all your hard work over the coming months and this weekend.
We couldn’t have done it without you.
Rob, Debbie, Sarah and the team
