Otterburn School Harvest

Preparations in St John's Otterburn
Wednesday 19th October 2011
    We were blessed with lovely autumn weather for more school harvest celebrations.  The first was in Bellingham First School, the second of the day in the church of St John the Evangelist was presemted by Otterburn First School who had walked three-quarters of a mile to get there.  It was a cold bright clear day  --  as can be seen from the quality of the light in this picture.  Four children (with their teacher) on guitars accompanied the singing and others played recorders.  Non-perishable gifts were given to be used at the People's Kitchen (for the homeless) in Newcastle.
The rest of the day was taken up with co-ordinating all the details of the programme for the Deanery event which has spread to the whole of Friday (as well as the originally-planned "Deanery Day" on Saturday)  See Events page.
