Another enjoyable harvest supper took place on Saturday, 13th October. There are, of course, many people to thank, whose hard work ensured a successful evening.
First of all, thank you to John Titcombe, who was in charge of the tickets and manned the reception desk. He also made a really good job of selling the raffle tickets and organising the draw.
Once again, Trish Clatworthy’s table decorations were stunning. Thank you Trish for what must have been hours and hours of dedicated work. Thank you also to Lilian Harding, who contributed a wide range of delicious desserts and to everybody else who provided salad or pudding dishes. Your contributions were very much appreciate.
After the meal the flower arrangements were auctioned off. We are very grateful for the generous bidding which took place. Richmond Harding, was determined that everyone should dig deep into their pockets to support church funds. He managed to get a top price of £20 for one of the flower arrangements. Thank you to Freddie Hayes for his winning bid and for all the other generous under-bidders.
Last but not least we must thank our team of washer-uppers without whom the harvest supper could not have taken place. At the end of the evening when all the proceeds were added up, we were delighted to find that we had made a total of £650. This was over and above the sum of £30 spent on food items for the Alcombe Larder.
Well done everybody. We look forward to seeing you again in 2019.
Tish Brown, Jo Johnson and Jane Pearn
