Netherfields Harvest Festival: was last Sunday and was followed by a lunch in the church. This was a delightful occasion with over 20 people coming together to enjoy the lunch. The food was donated by the participants and a superb spread it was with two hearty courses washed down with a glass of wine, or juice if you preferred. It was also good to have some members of Mountfields congregation join us for the lunch enforcing the togetherness of our parishes. I have to mention the beautiful autumnal decorations of seasonal fruits and flowers created by our ladies, this added significantly to the service and lunch aiding the Harvest Festival atmosphere. Well done to everyone for their input. Paul Smith, Churchwarden.
