Bellingham Harvest Supper

Friday 16th September 2011    The Churches Together (Methodist, United Reformed and Anglican) put on a Harvest Supper in the Town Hall.  It was a new venture and serving over sixty people with a hot meal was quite a challenge.  Between the Shepherds' Pie (cooked by a local expert) and the puddings (made by various home cooks) we had entertainment provided by a wide age range of musicians and story tellers.  Ticket prices were kept low.  Through everyone's generosity, when we had covered our main costs we were able to send over £80 to Farm Crisis Network (which supports farming people in practical ways at difficult times).  It seemed a suitable way to show our appreciation for a good harvest meal by remembering the farmers who provide our food.
