On September 28th we held our Harvest Thanksgiving afternoon. Members filled the tables with produce and Rev Jon conducted a short service. Margaret, as usual auctioned off all the produce in aid of this year’s charity, the British Heart Foundation.
October started with a rousing fanfare, when Lt Col Geoff Kingston, a retired bandmaster, who has conducted many military bands at ceremonial occasions, told us of the origins of the well-known marching songs of the First World War .We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon and thanked Lt Col Kingston for having travelled all the way from Newquay to be with us.
On October 12th Rosemary Scadden, a regular visitor, gave us a talk on Sea Shells .She brought her collection along, most of which were collected during the many years she spent living in the Solomon Islands.
