Harvest Festival is a traditional British celebration originating in pagan times, now celebrated in churches and schools throughout the country on a Sunday near the Harvest Moon.
With the Harvest Festival we give thanks for the harvest and the food that has been brought in and stored for the winter months ahead. Obviously in years gone by a successful harvest was crucial, and that is why we have similar festivals all around the world
We had many donations for the Harvest Festival. A small group of children from Ants then delivered the food to the Age Concern Centre. The children carried a bag each and then gave it to the ladies at the centre. The children then sat down for a glass of juice after their walk! The Age Concern centre were very grateful for our donations and asked us to pass on their gratitude to everyone who had donated.
