Matthew Flinders and The Church of St Mary and the Holy Rood | Flower Festival


As part of this year's highly anticipated flower festival, Evolve Flowers Ltd provided a stunning floral arrangement for 'The Church of St Mary and the Holy Rood' in Donington. The festival also served as a precursor to the homecoming of Captain Matthew Flinders, the famous cartographer and explorer, in summer 2024.

    So interested to read this! My ex husband is a descendent of Matthew Flinders and my son is called Flinders or ‘Flin’ for short ( my ex is called Matthew) .. I know Flinders day is celebrated yearly in Australia. We love the fabulous bronze of the explorer at Euston station.
    Fab article! Claire
