Harvest Time is Here Again

Harvest Festival

24th September 2018

Donations please between 19th and 21st September

Our Harvest Festival is planned for the afternoon of Monday September 24th at 2.00pm at All Saints Church Nettleham. This is always a wonderful opportunity to celebrate as a whole school and all are welcome.

We welcome contributions of harvest produce, indeed it is an extremely important time of year to allow us to both give thanks and raise our own awareness of the needs of others. Therefore the more generous people can be…the better.

We would, once again, encourage families to spend some time decorating a box with their children to hold contributions. It really does brighten up the church and I know that it gives a real lift to the charities who receive the produce. Please send produce into school on Wednesday 19th,  Thursday 20th and Friday 21st of September.

In terms of what could be donated, Lincoln Community Larder are currently issuing the following guidance, we hope that it helps plan your harvest box:
