Our traditional Harvest Festival celebrations were led this year by Reverend Alison, in her capacity as Chaplain of Carrdus and Tudor Hall Schools. In our Harvest Assembly, she highlighted the importance and value of sharing what we have with others.
Using items of food to illustrate, Reverend Alison retold the European folk tale of ‘Stone Soup’ to a captive audience. In the story, a traveller convinces the people of a village to each share a small amount of food in order to make a hearty meal that everyone can enjoy.
It was fun to hear the children in full song, led by our on-stage troupe of singers, as they chimed out a heart-warming rendition of the song, Cauliflowers Fluffy.
Thank you to all the families of Carrdus School, who gave so generously to our Harvest appeal for the Banbury Food Bank this year; it was wonderful to see the table in the Front Hall piled high with generous donations and gifts of food.
