Haveringland Harvest Festival 2016

It was a glorious sunny day as the Aylsham Band played in the Tractor run from Cawston. Following a brief welcoming service in the open air (featuring some well known harvest hymns), people tucked into a range of activities as well as some scrumptious refreshments!

As well as making their own bread and butter children (and some adults) were able to make their own tractors, do some colouring in, sow broadbean seeds and search for worms in the Master Composter wormery. We also had a few interesting standing steam engines on display.

Local history displays accompanied the cakes and teas inside the Church and the churchyard looked suitably ‘spruced up’ after ‘Haveringland Groundforce Day #1’!  Beautiful Quilts donated by Gisela Auckland raised £30 in a raffle which, along with other donations on the day, will go towards the upkeep of the church. The afternoon concluded with another brief service at which food stuffs were donated for a local Food Bank.

Thanks to sponsors Ben Burgess and to all who brought equipment, gave money, time and ideas towards the event!
