Harvest Festival Service

It feels well into autumn now although luckily we have had a bit of late summer sun to enjoy before the colder days and nights kick in.

Here at the Old Vicarage we have done numerous activities this month in the garden. Several residents played boules on the lawn, and on another occasion we had all our games outside and sat in the shade of the trees.

In art and craft some residents finished off their decorated jars and the lights that we ordered arrived. We put the lights inside and everyone thought they looked great and very effective. Residents also started to make some greetings cards out of tissue, old cards and stickers for them to give to any family who might have a birthday coming. The results made a much more individual card.

We had a sing a long morning, with Stan playing the organ and the residents enjoyed the mix of songs.

We had a lovely Harvest Festival Service and Stan also played some traditional hymns everyone enjoyed singing and with other residents helping organise the service it was a huge success. In gardening, our tubs are now not looking so colourful and we are thinking about anything which might be able to go in over the winter into the spring. We have continued to enjoy our home grown vegetables of potatoes, beetroot and runner beans and our tomatoes have been picked and eaten.

Cosmos are still being put out on the dining room tables but will soon be replaced by the dried statice we have grown in the tubs.
