Harvest saw the return of the parachuting bears to St. Andrew's, with teddy bear trail, teddy bears' picnic and the Pentrich Revolution Group display.  We all enjoyed an afternoon of great fun in warm sunshine - and our Social Committee worked overtime in providing refreshments for the many people who came in to admire the displays and follow the trail.  At the same time the indoor wooded picnic area hosted many small people and their bears.   Very many thanks to the hardworking St. Andrew's team who assisted in the teddy/parachute production line, to our indomitable Tower Captain John who stayed at his post throughout the afternoon, lobbing bears over the top with great aplomb.  To bucketmeister Alan who supervised the bear bucket hoist, and all those who completed bear labels and certificates.  A magificent team effort.  For memorable photos see our Facebook page -  swanwick and pentrich c of e churches.
