On Thursday 28th September Great Binfields will be holding our annual Harvest Festival. The service for the children will be held at St Mary’s Church in Old Basing. As a whole school we will be walking to the church, so please ensure that your child has suitable clothing and footwear.
Harvest is an opportunity for us to think about where our food comes from and about how hard the farmers have to work to ensure that we have enough to eat. As part of this we will also be thinking about people all over the world who do not have enough food and if there are any ways that we can help them. This year we will be continuing to support the excellent work of the Basingstoke Food Bank. The Bank provides a three day emergency food package for families and they rely on food donations to help keep going. We would be very grateful for any donations of food and please see the list below to know what the bank is currently requiring. Please bring any food donations to your child’s class on Thursday 28th September.
We hope that the children will enjoy the harvest festival and are looking forward to it as much as the staff are.
