Harvest Supper – another very enjoyable evening!

Harvest Supper

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

Beacon for Rembrance

On the 11th November 2018, the United Kingdom and its friends overseas will mark

the day 100 years ago when the guns fell silent at the end of the First World War.

There will be a chance to pay our personal tribute to those millions who died

or returned wounded from the dreadful four years of war by joining together on

Winsford Hill at Wambarrows on November 11th at 6.55pm for the lighting of a

beacon. This will be one of several in the area and it is hoped the weather will

not prevent our seeing the surrounding beacons light up in memory of those to

whom we owe so much.
