Kilmington Primary School pupils, along with 60 parents and carers, gathered at The Beacon Baptist Church for their annual harvest assembly.

Welcomed by the head girl and boy, the audience enjoyed a programme which included an array of information, with each class presenting something on the different aspects of harvest.

Coly Class presented a piece about sharing bread with the hungry, and retold the story of the feeding of the 5,000 from a memorised script. Yarty Class gave an informative piece about farming in Anglo-Saxon times and how communities worked together.

Otter Class did a musical and rhythmic performance piece called Thank you for the Harvest.

And members of the Axe Class each told the audience how they help their families and friends in a variety of ways. The assembly closed with a song called The Sharing Bread and a prayer led by Baptist Pastor Darrell Holmes

The whole school brought non-perishable food items that were taken to the Axminster Canned Sunshine Foodbank, which in turn, said Pastor Holmes, ‘will make a difference to lots of families and individuals struggling in financial ways for a variety of reasons’.
