Tomorrow, we will be having a Harvest Festival in school. Harvest is a time to give thanks. Harvest Festival is also a celebration of the food grown on the land. Thanksgiving ceremonies and celebrations for a successful harvest are both worldwide and very ancient. In Britain, people have given thanks for successful harvests since pagan times. Christians celebrate this day by singing, praying and decorating our churches with baskets of fruit and food in a festival known as ‘Harvest Festival’, usually during the month of September.
Tomorrow, we will be joined by the Rev. Andy Norris from St. Mary’s Church in Alverstoke and Caring Hands. Andy will be talking to us about harvest and Caring Hands, a local food bank, will explain how our donations will support local people and families. If you have some packet, tinned or jarred food items you can spare, please send them in so we can provide a generous gift to the food bank. NO FRESH ITEMS.
