Harvest Festival

I was delighted to be able to welcome the Lord Lieutenant of Greater Manchester to St. Anne’s Tottington this morning when he joined our annual harvest festival service. It was a ‘Parade’ service with standards being presented by the various uniformed organisations and as is now traditional their members contributed a small mountain of food and drinks for use by the Booth Centre in Manchester. Unfortunately, the Lord Lieutenant had to leave after the service in order to get to his next engagement down in Bury which is a pity as he missed  the superb harvest lunch buffet.
