A PICNIC among the wildflowers in South Hinksey is set to become an annual fixture after more than 20 villagers attended.
The family feast was held on a sunny afternoon in the meadow behind the village’s St Laurence Church.
Wildflower seeds have been planted there to create a wildlife haven.
Parish council chairwoman Maggie Rawcliffe said: “It was a lovely occasion.’’ The idea to plant the flowers originally came from her husband Peter Rawcliffe, and it was his idea to hold the picnic on Saturday, July 12, to enjoy them.
