Harvest Festival 2013

It was wonderful to see so many parents, grandparents, Governors and Friends of Abbey Primary School at our Harvest Festival in the Cathedral.  We were delighted and honoured to not only support The Bishop’s Harvest Appeal “A Sweeter Deal”, but to have Bishop Alan participate in the service and speak with us about the impact of his appeal on the people of Ethiopia.  I am sure you will join me in congratulating the staff and children for all their hard work in making the service such a special occasion; showcasing not only the many talents of our children, but what a difference we can make to people less fortunate than ourselves when we work together as a community.

 I would also like to thank you for your kind and generous donations of non-perishable gifts at the festival.  Your donations were taken straight to Open Door after the service, who were overwhelmed by the school community’s generosity.  Thank you very much to School Governors Linda Marchment and Rosemary Campbell for sorting the items ready for delivery while the service was taking place, and to parents who loaded their cars with our gifts and drove them to the charity.
