Harvest Happiness!

On Thursday 29th September staff, children and their families celebrated Harvest Festival at Woodland Corner.

The children brought fruit and vegetables they had grown or foraged and a beautiful Harvest loaf was donated by the Blackberry Bakery in Colchester.

Rachel Hitchcock came to show the children vegetables grown by our friends at TRANSITION NAYLAND and talked to the children about the importance of supporting and buying locally grown produce.

A collection was made for Save The Children’s East Africa Appeal and £23 was raised. Everyone shared a picnic lunch at the end of the morning.
