Generous children from a village primary school gave something back to their community by holding a harvest festival.

The pupils who attend St Andrew’s Primary School, in Congresbury, went to a service at St Andrew’s Church to mark the harvest.

Children were encouraged to bring in produce, fruit, coffee, tea and tinned food.

Their gifts have been donated to Weston homeless charity Somewhere To Go, which is supported by the church next to the school’s grounds.

Many children donated vegetables, such as pumpkins, which they had planted, grown and harvested themselves.
