Pupils and staff at Cranleigh Prep School celebrated the harvest festival last week with a service and a trip to a day centre.

On Thursday, the window sills and tables around the school’s chapel were adorned with goodies ranging from fresh fruit and vegetables, to chocolates, biscuits and tinned food as part of the service taken by Tim Lewis, Chaplain of Cranleigh School.

On Friday, the chapel team and the lower school choir then took all the harvest festival goodies down to Rowleys Day Centre.

They were accompanied by Ruth Williams, head of music, and Marie Ward, head of piano.

The 10-piece choir of children aged between seven and nine years old, sang two pieces: ‘Everything Around Me’ and ‘The Power In Me.’

Emma Reid from Cranleigh Prep School, said: “Their singing was delightful and the elderly people were extremely complimentary and clearly appreciated the visit.

“The children then joined together with the adults to sing ‘All Things Bright And Beautiful’ which was a perfect way to finish. We look forward to more visits to Rowleys in the future.

“An enormous thank you to all our pupils and their families for their generous donations to the Harvest collection.

“I’m sure it will be very much appreciated and enjoyed by all the residents at Rowleys.”
