On Friday September 28th 2018, we once more continued with the tradition of a Harvest Supper with long tables and buffet food consisting of cold meats, salmon, quiches and salads. The routine had been going for goodness knows how many years under Cora Munford’s wing while she was alive, and never failed to bring people in. ‘If it aint broke, don’t fix it’!
Three years ago we supplied for pudding mostly fruit crumbles with one caramelised meringue dessert. Two years ago, we reduced the crumbles and made two meringues. The meringues still disappeared in a flash. This year we had four and hopefully everyone who wanted some, did get some!
Revd Ruth was away in Australia and all round star Liz Schmitt was in Germany so we were nervous about the serving and clearing up. But there was lots of amazing help on the night, and also earlier with the setting up. Needless to say 12 amazing people were involved in the cooking. It was very gratifying to be asked ‘who were the caterers?’ Thanks to them all, and those who supplied the wonderful raffle prizes, too. And thank you to every paying customer. Without you we would not have raised over £63o for the work of the church.
The Supper on the Friday was followed by a joint Sunday service with Woolpit, taking place in a beautifully decorated church, thanks to the very talented flower team. The special speaker was from MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship) who fly small planes to the most remote parts of the world, carrying people, medicines and food supplies. The Harvest collection went to the work of MAF, a very worthy recipient of the £372 that was given.
