Harvest Festival

🤗Thank you to everyone who came to our first Harvest Festival today🤗

♥️The team, led by Gemma went above and beyond to create a seasonal atmosphere and worked so hard planning, shopping, cooking and setting up the displays for everyone to enjoy. They clocked up over 50 volunteer hours ❤️🙏🏻

🧅For our fresh display we received donations from New Hill Allotment and our volunteer Pete from his allotment, along with a charitable discount from Fresh and Fruity at Langley Park, and a harvest collection from St John’s congregation.

The food everyone shared today was:

🍲Loaded veg savoury mince with plain or cheddar dumplings and parley buttered new potatoes

🍲Chicken, leek and bacon casserole with crispy new potato lid

🍲Root Vegetable Broth with/without ham topping

🍽We served 63 meals and 30 portions to take out. A huge heartfelt thank you to Gemma, Jo-Anne, Dan and Lisa for making sure everyone was fed.

🙏🏻Thank you to Sarah and Susan from Sacriston Salvation Army, Ally from Langley Moor Salvation Army and Linda our baby group volunteer for organising the activities.

The children enjoyed:

Sourdough plaits

Sweetie boxes

Wooden spoon scarecrows

Bird feeders

Papercraft flowers

Harvest colouring

Organic playdoh

Harvest tuffspot

🙏🏻Thank you to Rev Michael Peers for leading the service today.

❤️After the feedback today we have decided to make this an annual event
