Harvest Festival

Sunday 29th September 2013
Harvest Festival in Keld Chapel
A beautiful display of  flowers, fruit and vegetable decorated the church.
 A bale of hay and a Swaledale fleece represented harvest in the upper dale.
The service was taken by visiting Minister-in-Residence, Rev Richard Kidd of Derbyshire

The next day, all the Harvest Festival produce is auctioned.  Keld Lodge hosts this event and provides a welcome supper before the auction begins.  Ronnie Metcalfe from Gunnerside and formerly of Greenses takes the auction.  He expertly and often amusingly manages to extract every last penny from the assembled crowd!

Thank you Nick, Ronnie and everyone who supported the chapel through their generous bidding.
