Harvest Festival Report

Once again this year, the Club enjoyed a wonderful Harvest Festival Service at St Martin-in-the-Fields followed by a magnificent buffet supper here in the Club. 

The Service was led by Bishop Peter Hullah who was invaluable in putting the Service together and coordinating the various elements.  The theme this year was ‘Making Sense in a World of Conflict’, and we were delighted to welcome the Bishop of Truro, Bishop Tim Thornton (also a Club member), who delivered a wonderful Sermon full of humour and relevance.  And finally, I should like to thank The Revd Dr Gordon Gatward who led the prayers once again.

I should also thank the Head Chef for putting together some of the best baskets of produce I have seen in my time at the Club.  As always, the contents of our 7 trugs were donated to St Martin’s homeless and gratefully received.

Then, once back at the Club we were treated to very probably the best buffet supper I have been lucky enough to experience here.  The compliments were warm and sincere and as ever, the atmosphere friendly and convivial. It really is one of the best nights in the Club’s calendar.
