Harvest Festival Event

Wow, what a wonderful Harvest Evening.
The moon was full and shining through a clear sky as we came out of church.   The service was uplifting and short with cracking hymns and the church decorated beautifully with a stunning array of flowers and harvest goods.
Then the supper…. What a happy gathering drawing in people who hadn’t been before.
The food and laughter flowed all evening as everyone celebrated the gathering of the crops, the farmers and the changing seasons and all God’s gifts.
No evening is such a success without the most incredible team work and input of so many.

A huge thank you is due to all who came to the event and all who helped in the management, catering, setting up and tasks on the night, including washing up!.
Quietly, (or noisily) and efficiently the team played their role so well that it was a seamless event and a roaring success. Proceeds from the evening, including donations of money and goods in kind totalled £533.29 for St Mary Magdalene Church.
