In Northumberland, it’s hard to not miss how busy the while agricultural community have been recently, gathering and storing the harvest for another year. So it’s only fitting that we, as part of the rural community in Upper Coquetdale, join together to celebrate and thank God for another safe and successful farming year.
As in previous years, our celebration began with a Ceilidh in the Thropton War Memorial Hall, accompanied by the fabulous Penny Dot band.
It was great to see some 50-60 people of all ages turn out on a cold evening to join in the fun, and spend time dancing, eating or just chatting with each other.
At Armstrong Hall, our Family Service will have a harvest theme, aided by some fantastic displays of local produce.
Finally, was our service of Harvest Praise in the Coquetdale Music Centre in Thropton at 1830 on Sunday, where our church musicians were joined by the Wanny Liners for some time of praise and worship, before returning to Armstrong Hall for hot drinks and homemade sweet treats.
