Dalry Nursery Harvest Celebration

Dalry Nursery Class children, their parents and staff, were welcomed at St Martin’s Church by Yousouf Gooljary, the minister, on Thursday 4th October.

Yousouf told us a story about sharing with others and we sang a song about sharing too!  The children helped to place the donations of packet and tinned food on the alter.

The church will distribute these foods to those in need.  We would all like to thank the generosity of our families who gifted so many items to share with the community.
