Holy Trinity harvest Festival - the children of Holy Trinity Infant School celebrated a harvest festival. Many gifts of fruit, flowers, and vegetables were collected, the little ones seems delighted to bring their offerings. Potatoes, carrots, and parsnips were carefully scrubbed so that they looked almost as enticing as the rosy apples and pears. Little gifts of fruit and flowers were taken to the house of a sick playmate carried by some of the children including the Harvest Queen in her regalia of autumn leaves and berries. The rest of the fruit was sent to the Norton Military Hospital per the Recruiting Office, Broad Street.
