THE annual harvest festival, a staple in every school calendar, has rolled back around.

One village primary school uses the autumn celebration as a way of collecting valuable goods for a local charity. All the food collected at Locking Primary School’s harvest festival will be donated to Weston Foodbank to be handed out as emergency food parcels to people living in poverty.

Headteacher of Locking Primary School Joanne Jones said: “Once again we were overwhelmed with the amount of food our pupils brought in to share with the foodbank. Children and parents joined together for an assembly where they enjoyed songs, poems and artwork.”
