It wouldn't be Harvest Supper without a produce auction and the inclusion of Ian Neal's prize winning giant red cabbage. It could feed a family all winter but in this case it was bought to provide a whole school with an extra veg at dinner time! From baskets of home grown vegetables for Sunday roast to bottles of wine. From fruit to homemade jams and pickles- there was something to tempt everyone. Graham as always providing plenty of laughs as he drummed up the bids for charity!
Friends had transformed the tables to provide a harvest theme and by the time folk sat down to eat it was laden with great food and giant bottles of extra special fizz - a contribution from Mark The local farmer sent a basket of conkers, a basket of wheat seed and a box of Weetabix to augment the giant wheat sheaf loaf which was enjoyed by all topped with lashings of butter.
There was music provided by Ioan who led the singing. There was plenty of talking and laughter and great community spirit and in a moments reflection we remembered all those who would go to bed hungry and contemplated how we could make some small contribution to their needs so that they too could celebrate harvest time
The Harvest Supper was great on Saturday night. There was a good turnout, the Hall was beautifully decorated and more food than we could eat. We raised £192 from the raffle and the Auction. You must see Janet's photos on Facebook - they are excellent.
