Flower festival at Rolvenden
Flower festival at Rolvenden
The earliest evidence at St Mary the Virgin Rolvenden is from the 13th century - these are two lancets in the chancel and parts of two more in the south wall. The church has an early 14th century nave and the tower is slightly later.

The flower festival in 2014 had a theme of Aesop's Fables. Aesop was reputed to be a slave living in ancient Greece around 620-520 BC. He was a story teller who loved to collect fables with a moral. This one is 'The Two Bags'.

The card explains that every man carries two bags about with him, one in front and one behind, and both are packed full of faults. The bag in front contains his neighbour's faults and the one behind contains his own. Hence it is that men do not see their own faults but never fail to see the faults of others.
