Pupils are given food for thought

A dozen members of the Tweedmouth Community Middle School council delivered food parcels to elderly residents in the community last week as part of their Harvest Festival celebration.

This is a tradition spanning decades at the school and is always appreciated by the locals receiving the food parcels that have been gathered and put together by pupils at the school.

Mrs Hynes, one of the many residents who received a food parcel, said: “What a pleasure to open my door to such a lovely set of youngsters.”

The parcel delivery was preceded by a special Harvest Assembly led by Rev Knox.

He highlighted the difference between coveting what others have and being content with what you have, which left the children with ‘food for thought’. It is hoped the tradition continues for many more years.
