Blandford Church was beautifully decorated for our Harvest Service this weekend.  It was wonderful to welcome so many visitors to the service, and to have the Guides and Brownies doing the readings and leading intercessions.  A collection of non-perishable food was made, which will be donated to Blandford Foodbank.
