Linkage Harvest Supper

To date we have yet to achieve a quorum for the planned Harvest Supper on Friday 7th October in St Andrew’s Hall. In the hope that this might still be possible, could you please advise name and numbers as below.

As usual, it is requested that each person brings one item serving six people.


Item What kind?
Cold meat  
Soft drink  

Please telephone Evelyn Nicolson on 01877 330436 or email 01877 331508 by Friday 30th September. Paper copies of this form are at the back of both churches.



Harvest Festival Service Donations


At the Harvest Festival Services this year we hope to launch a project to enable us to make a modest weekly contribution of items to Start-Up, a local organisation assisting those experiencing homelessness or other hardship.


The following items are always in need, please

Tinned meat/fish/veg/beans, soup/fruit

Dried foods

Ready meals

Cooking sauces

Breakfast cereals

UHT milk




Cleaning products

Household goods – crockery, cutlery, towels, pots and pans.
