On Saturday 13th October, children and parents arrived at St Mary's for a special activity time for Harvest. The children made corn dollies, designed biscuits, made a collage with leaves and seed heads, and Kevin Burke entertained everyone with some magic! It was food-themed with a Heinz can on a rope performing tricks and a jar of rice having been lifted with one chopstick, eventually was magically cooked and converted into rice cakes.  

Many thanks to all those who helped and, through all the fun, talk of the food bank and the needs of those who struggle to buy basic food and other necessities, which has been very much the focus for the churches this Harvest time, was brought home to all present.
