Stunning seasonal displays on show at harvest festival
Residents from OSJCT homes across Lincolnshire showcased some of their stunning seasonal displays of produce, flowers, crafts and cakes at their annual harvest festival.
More than 80 residents, employees and volunteers attended the event at The Venue in Navenby.
On show were some beautiful seasonal displays made by residents featuring preserves, cakes and homegrown produce as well as floral arrangements and scarecrows.
Prizes were awarded in several categories including the best floral display, vegetables, Victoria sandwich and scarecrow.
The prize for the best overall display was won by Apple Trees in Grantham which had put together a very impressive harvest display, which residents had spent weeks working on.
Anita Rudd, Volunteer and Events Manager for Lincolnshire, who organised the harvest festival, said: “Once again the displays the homes created were stunning, the amount of work that had gone into the creations that were displayed was astounding.”
“Not only is it a great chance for residents from our different homes to get together, they also really enjoy the opportunity to showcase some of their skills and talents in gardening, baking and crafts. It’s always fantastic to see how much work has gone into the harvest displays and just goes to show the wide range of activities that residents can get involved with in our homes.”
As well as showcasing their harvest creations, residents also took part in a service with hymns and prayers, which was led again by Bobby, a retired Reverend who lives at Gregory House.
Jill Hughes, the OSJCT Trustee for Lincolnshire, and Trust Chief Executive Dan Hayes both attended the festival.
