THE fifth annual Axbridge Harvest Home saw about 100 residents pack into the Town Hall for free cider as well as a range of food.

The event, to celebrate the coming of the harvest season, also raises money for charities and individual good causes.

In the past five years the event has raised more than £3,000 for charity.

Harvest home chairman Liz Scott said: “We are really pleased with how it went.

“We had an excellent speaker, Dave Hitchings, a retired farmer from Puxton, who had everybody in stitches.

“Grace was said by Tim Hawkings, and someone said it was the funniest grace they have heard.

“I think it is important to hold the harvest home because it is a tradition and it brings everyone together to have fun.”

The harvest home group is currently looking for people or charities to nominate themselves or others to benefit from their fundraising. To find out more, email moorlandfm@btinernet.com
