|Preparations in St John's Otterburn|
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.
