Harvest Festival

On Thursday afternoon, despite the weather, St David’s Church was full for our Harvest Festival. Fairtrade Council and School Council were involved in the service, reminding us about caring for those less fortunate than ourselves. Singing filled the church with wonderful performances by the whole school of their harvest songs. Our thanks to Mrs Williams for leading the service. Your generosity in donations for the Brecon Foodbank has been overwhelming and all goods will be used to support others in our community. Thank you everyone for your support.
