Friends of St Paul’s annual Harvest Festival will bring crowds gather to celebrate and give thanks to the “bounty of the land”.

Chairman Robert Smith said the event would be a fun day with “good old fashioned entertainment”.

Activities will include sack races, “stepping the chain”, and “spirited bidding” for things such as fruit, vegetables, and homemade preserves. Cottage Bakery will be selling tea, coffee and treats, and a barbecue and hot jacket potatoes will also be available. 

The Harvest Festival will be held on April 7 at the Springfield church grounds.

Produce can be left from 10am, and the barbecue will start at 11am. The blessing of the harvest will take place from 12pm, with the auction starting at 12.30pm.
