It was a real joy to welcome so many people to the Harvest Festival on Sunday 6 October! The three schools’ choirs all sang beautifully and we hope all parents were able to see- it was so full that many were left standing all around the sides of the nave and at the back.
The service was themed around bees, honey and the environment and featured a film clip of Pooh bear, a talk by Steve Allen, a bear in search of honey, lots of buzzing bees and the unveiling of the Wivenhoe Wildlife board in the churchyard afterwards.
Thanks go to everyone who contributed to the enormous pile of Harvest gifts! They were distributed the following day to the organisations and people mentioned in the post before this one.
