CHILDREN at South Farnham School celebrated this year’s harvest in style recently as they put on a special assembly for friends and family.

Around 1,000 people packed into the hall to join in the annual event, which included a variety of harvest-themed performances.

Year three children sang a song entitled five-a-day, while year four recited an autumnal poem with props and actions.

Year five took to the stage to perform a song and dance routine entitled ‘Autumn is Love,’ followed by a short play produced by year six children.

Food donated on the day was placed on a row of tables outside the hall before being collected and given to Farnham Foodbank, who will distribute it to those in need.

Tins, packets and fresh fruit and vegetables made up the impressive display, including several large marrows and a giant pumpkin.

Two teachers, Andrew Friend and Daniel Strachan, even baked their own bread for the occasion.

A spokesperson for Farnham Foodbank said: “I’m sure many people will be amazed that somewhere like Farnham needs a food bank but we do and we are always so grateful for the donations we receive each year from the school.”
