Farmers Celebrating Harvest
Harvest Supper Is Always A Favourite

"And we were fed and watered by Chapel's happy band."

The play on words of the title is a variation on what is probably the favourite of all the harvest hymns at Tarvin Methodist Church — No 130 in our new hymn books:
"We plough the fields and scatter
The good seed on the land
But it is fed and watered
By God's almighty hand;"

Harvest celebrations at TMC are never completed until we have all enjoyed our harvest supper. This is a very traditional meal — hotpot with red cabbage (or beetroot for the more adventurous), followed by apple pie and custard — and is served in the Church which has been decorated for the celebration of Harvest Festival. It was a wonderful evening, enjoyed by well over thirty people. The food (needless to say) was magnificent — after all, the TMC ladies have their reputations to maintain — and was in such quantity that one or two hungry people managed 'thirds'! There followed a celebration of readings and hymns, organised by Sybil Williams, which brilliantly encapsulated the spirit of harvest and enabled us to sing our favourite hymns (including "We plough the fields") with full vigour and gusto. It was a lovely evening and it was really good, once again, to be a part of "Chapel's happy band" on such an occasion.
