The 1st Heysham Girl Guides and 2nd Heysham Brownies and the newly formed 1st Sandylands Boy Scouts attended a Young People’s Harvest Festival Service at the St. John’s Parochial Hall on Sunday afternoon.
The service was conducted by the senior members, and the Rev. J. H. Winrow (Vicar-designate of St. Christopher’s, Bare) who gave the sermon.
Before the service commenced, the Vicar of St. John’s (the Rev. D. C. Kennedy M.A.) dedicated the new company flag of the 1st Heysham GFS Girl Guides , which was laid on the altar during the service and afterwards unfurled and presented to the colour party.
The hall was tastefully decorated, and later the produce was taken to the Craig Convalescent Home, and the sick and injured of the parish.
