Old Buckenham Methodist Church

Activities and events
The Harvest Festival was held on Sunday 13 September. It was a very special service with a large congregation and enjoyed by all. There was a plentiful supply of harvest gifts given as well as music from a talented organist, a cello player, a singing trio and a guitarist with his son on a bongo drum. The following evening was the sell-off of all the gifts plus more given that day. It took the form of an auction and the auctioneer was Les Large. A really happy evening was enjoyed by all who attended, with much laughter and amusement. A sum of £343 was raised towards the the building of a house in Zimbabwe, housing someone who can make sure that their piece of land, where they grow vegetables, raise a few chickens and a cow or two, is kept secure. This enables single mums make a living for themselves and their children.
