At this year’s event, we decided to hold a Members Produce Show, which proved popular and there were a variety of different classes entered from a flower arrangement in a wellington boot, digtial photography, as well as a super range of vegetables, largest pumpkin to the tallest weed!   It was a lovely day, the bar was open, the weather was beautiful with Jazz playing on the terrace and out on the recreation field was a static display of vintage tractors and motorbikes, a crockery smash, badge making, tombola, coconut shy and hoop-la. Inside the hall was a range of stalls with various local artist paintings and photography, craft, beauty, local honey, special homemade breads, cakes, ploughman's lunches and delicious cream teas served by the WI ladies. People had a go trying to solve the Redhill picture board treasure hunt and watched the digital photo competition "Images of Redhill" on the HD Big screen. The afternoon ended with the raffle and the presentation to the prize winners, then at 6.30pm, Christ Church held a special Harvest Service conducted by the Revd. Judith Malins to say thanks to God for the harvest. After the service, those who paid for a ticket sat-down in the hall to enjoy their Harvest Supper of cold meats, salads and hot potatoes, plus a choice of desserts, followed by a hearty selection of cheese and bisuits. An auction of the exhibits from the day took place and the money raised, plus cash from the WI cream teas was donated to the church to help with the refurbishment and also to St Michael's Cheshire Home in Axbridge. To round off the day’s events, we were entertained by local singer Val Ross, who had us all singing along to some of our favourite past-time songs.   We plan to hold this event annually as everyone had a really good day it is a great opportunity for the community to come together and also for people who have had to leave the village to come back again. It has been a great effort by everyone involved and we have received lots of thanks and praise from a number of people for doing such a good job. May we all be able to keep up our efforts, so we can look forward to seeing you all again at next years event! Photos by Jacqui Fowler & Ann Dale
