Geoff Howell: September 2018
The popular Mums & Tots harvest festival service at Upper Branton is on Sunday 30 September at 10.30 am.
This year's service is led by Mr Geoffrey Crowther and will, as usual, involve Upper Branton's interpretative dance group. Early arrival is advised to be sure of a seat and ear-plugs rather than hearing-aids are the order of the day. Gifts of harvest produce will be received during the service and, what doesn't get eaten during it, will be distributed in Upper Branton afterwards.
Mums & Tots meets in the Upper Branton schoolroom every Tuesday between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm. New members always welcome.
