YOUNGSTERS from Bargates Nursery took part in a special Harvest Festival Service at Leominster Priory Church.

The children took part in storytelling, prayers and a session of Messy Play, led by David and Kathy Bland.

The session offer children the chance to get creative as they made bird feeders, created pictures from leaves and conkers and sculpted their own dough creatures.

Bargates Nursery Owner Gill Bilbrough said: “Parents and Grandparents of the three and four year olds joined in for the seasonal experience and encouraged their family to donate food items for Leominster Community Larder. The response was wonderful and we all experienced a slice of community magic.”
