Caitlin was off to Wimbledon this weekend at St. Paul’s Church celebrating 120 years serving its parish with a Flower Festival.  Armed with hay fever tablets and an enthusiasm for flowers, on Tuesday night’s show, she’ll bring you the atmosphere of the event including live music, local history and hopefully a good old chinwag with the vicar.
