Many thanks to all who supported St Paul’s Harvest Festival with gifts for the Foodbank and Honeypot.
We enjoyed a lovely Harvest Supper in the splendid setting of the Domus. I am grateful to Lord Montagu for once again making it available to us. Our thanks to the Social Committee who produced a delicious series of courses. Well done Jan and her excellent team: Gloria, Annie, Margaret, Gillian, Helen & Lindy...and to David and John for their help. Thanks also to the accommodating Estate team who cleared away so efficiently after us. Leigh Jerwood at the keyboard enabled us to sing the humourous community songs with enthusiasm. Thank you one and all. FJ
