Children and staff at Norham St Ceowlulf's C of E First School celebrated their Harvest Festival with parents, friends andspecial visitors, Rev Gill Welsh, the Methodist minister for Berwick, and Becci Murray from Berwick Food Bank.

Parents, friends and two special visitors – Rev Gill Welsh, Methodist minister for Berwick and Becci Murray from Berwick Food Bank – came along.

The children performed a very special harvest assembly with songs, readings and prayers and then donated all the food that had been collected, including fruit and vegetables grown in the school garden and at Alnwick Garden as part of the Roots and Shoots programme which Year 3 and 4 took part in last year.

To continue the theme of thankfulness and helping those less fortunate than ourselves, the school now has a food bank donation box in the entrance where parents, children and the wider community can drop off their donations. Due to the donations given by harvest festivals, Berwick Food Bank does not has any urgent requirements at the moment.
