Time stood still and the sun shone over Monxton & Amport last weekend as a Harvest Celebration took place!
Conceived as a simple but most effective plan by a few local village ladies to raise funds for good causes through the fruits of the local, bumper harvest. Mounted variably around the village, local folk were invited to ‘tour’ the various driveways to buy a vast range of healthy and nutritious produce kindly donated by local stores, farmers or prepared by the many local kitchen chefs!
Raising over £800 on the day was a considerable achievement which provided well-needed funds for the Village Hall, Church and the ‘School of Hope’ in Nairobi, Kenya. Perhaps even more noteworthy and rewarding however, was the opportunity to re-connect with friends and neighbours, many of whom had been housebound for much of the summer, in an open C19-compliant, informal and healthy manner. A priceless opportunity which remains critical to the wellbeing of all our communities. Such positive efforts are to be commended.
