We were delighted to be invited to the first Westminster Abbey Harvest Service since 1996 by HRH Duchess of Cornwall. Our Growing Club worked hard led by our parents and Miss Godfrey to produce a wonderful school and home grown box of produce entitled Sheffield Steel City Produce.  We took this carefully down to London and joined the presentation line after the service which was attended by many VIPs.  Martin Clunes, Damien Lewis, Dave the Hairy Biker, NewsRound, Blue Peter and the Country File were all there  and chatted to the children even though it was pouring with rain. Westminster Abbey was magnificent and it was an awesome experience to be included in the traditional harvest service.  In the afternoon we visited the London Aquarium, spent time in the great London Eye adventure park before eating pizza on the way home.  It was a brilliant experience!
