Harvest festival is history feast at Gorse Hall Primary

GORSE Hall Primary and Nursery School’s harvest festival service had a different twist.

It was linked to the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

The whole school packed into Holy Trinity for the 45-minute service that had both a harvest and WWI theme.

Though most of the nine songs were related to harvest, they included ‘It’s a Long Way to Tipperary’ that was composed in the town by Jack Judge in 1912 and which became a popular tune among soldiers fighting in the Great War.

Also on display at Holy Trinity was their giant bee that formed part of the ‘Bee in the City’ initiative in Manchester this summer.
