There was an amazing display of flowers, fruit and vegetables displayed at St Peter’s for Harvest Festival Sunday on 2nd October thanks to the hard work of Sheila Sorby and her team.

The flower arrangements inside the church were so colourful, arranged by the Beech Gardeners, and everywhere one looked there were flowers – in every window, in and beneath the font, all around the altar – every surface had flowers or produce on it.

The wonderful display outside the front of the church was thanks to Doug and Suzy Palmer. Sally Cox and Eileen King.  Well done all of you – what talent.

The service was well attended and there were funny readings as well as informal and formal ones read by residents of Beech.

Nick Sorby read “To Autumn” by John Keats, Ruth Cockburn read “In the Garden”, Anna Aungiers read “Diary of a Church Mouse” by John Betjeman, Pauline Willis read “Upon a Day” by Reginald Arkell, Sheila Sorby gave a little talk, and finally Gloria Wills read and demonstrated “When I get up from my chair” by Pam Ayres, and we all sang a silly song called “Cauliflowers fluffy, Cabbages green” – which was very apt.
