    Apple Pressing

    Our thanks to Clive Richardson for all his hard work on Saturday 11th October working the apple press and to Chris Newton and Linda Dutton for the delicious lunch. Many other people helped in so many ways and we would not have had a successful event without the apples and grapes which were brought to press. Thanks to all of them too. We raised £180 for church funds and had a very good day.

    Harvest

    A big thank you to all who helped make our Harvest Worship and
    Celebrations so wonderful this year.
