ICONIC Belgian sleuth Poirot has arrived in Pudleston as preparations are underway for the upcoming Agatha Christie themed Flower Festival.

The Church Warden of Pudleston, Robin Wilson, is a former scenic artist and prop maker and has put his skills to use by creating Poirot in model form.

The model will be on display at the Flower Festival on August 11 and 12.

The talented church warden has also painted Poirot, Miss Marple and Agatha Christie which will also be available to view.

Pudleston Flower Festival will celebrate the works of Dame Agatha Christie and will be formally opened by the author's grandson, Mathew Prichard.
