Harvest Festival Supper and Charity Auction
Our Harvest Service of Thanksgiving, followed by a hot supper and Charity Auction, went extremely well last Sunday and a good evening was had by all!
About 50 people came to the Harvest Festival service itself, always one of the best attended of the year, with about 60 coming to the Flecknoe village hall afterwards for supper.
The food was home-produced and excellent as always!
We raised £227.55 from an auction of fresh local produce, which will be donated to Rugby Myton Hospice.
Our heartfelt thanks, as always, to the hardworking team who decorated the church, set up the village hall, prepared and served 60 main courses and desserts ... and even washed up afterwards!
Our thanks also to David Thomas, our talented auctioneer, and to everyone who attended the evening and gave so generously in their auction bids.
We look forward to another successful Harvest Festival at St. Mark's in 2006!
