It’s beginning to look a lot like a bumper Autumn issue…
We’ve been thinking at Working Together about some of the festivals that we celebrate in the Autumn. These include Harvest Festivals and Halloween.
We even managed to grow our own pumpkin at Rockspring! We had fun carving pumpkins and we made a big display which included pictures, vegetable prints, harvest produce and poems written by our Writers’ Club.
Autumn Prayer by Thomas
And think about the trees
Gather things in for the winter
Remember God and wonderful things
To nurture the trees
And the water and the sea
Remember when you pick apples from the tree
One simple thing
That we are part of autumn
Remember the love of our natural world
Eat and enjoy it
Because it is out there.
Autumn Poem by Steph
As I sit by an open window
I can hear the autumn winds
And the pitter patter of the
rain on my window
And I can see
The animals starting to hibernate
And the frost forming on the ground
As I sit by a warm, roaring fire
With a mug of hot chocolate
With marshmallows and cream in my
Wearing my cosy, winter pyjamas.
It’s Autumn Time by Julian
I walk to the churchyard
See leaves on the ground
And see squirrels running about
And see falling leaves
And see falling apples
And see mushrooms in the fields
Farmers put up scarecrows
And windy and rainy
And raking leaves and Halloween
People have parties
And people drink hot coffee and hot soups.
Autumn by Beth
All autumn colours
Like orange, red
With each other
To match up with the name
Summer into Autumn by Rachael
The sun rose up in the sky of copper haze
The birds are singing gaily on the cherry blossom
The autumn leaves are a-changing colours
Tawny owls and badgers and fawns are walking in the woods
There was I sitting on a sun lounger in the back garden
The plums and the apple tree and the purple haze
That autumn is now here and the golden and the lemon and the orange
Are the colours
Are changing into autumn
And there is me, sitting by the log fire with a good book
All curled up with a rug over me, in a comfy chair.
Youth Club Pizza & Planning Night
Great to be back after the summer break…
We made pizzas from scratch (Lizzy had stuffed peppers as she hates pizza). It’s fun kneading the dough and choosing what toppings we want!
Cheese grated on top is perfect… but don’t ask Max about his cheese! Oops.
We shared ideas of things we would like to do at youth club and things we love in life, music seems to be a shared love for everyone!

Ten Pin Bowling Night… STRIKE!!
Youth Club and Diversity met together this month at the Grove Bowling.
It was great to meet up and enjoy a game especially as we haven’t seen some pals for such a long time.
Some of us were definitely pro’s at bowling with Nate getting 3 strikes in the Youth Club lane! WOW!!
It was great cheering everyone on and support each other on with just a bit of competitive banter.
Thanks also to Alan for sorting out a visit to the Golf Club for food – we had a lovely private dining experience.
Last week was Trustees’ Week and we wanted say a huge thank you to all of our Trustees:
Nicola North (Chair), Mike Beazley (Treasurer), Emily Moseley, Simon Lambourne, Alison Holman,
Julian Crombleholme, Louise Anton and Sarah Jones
Many of whom also volunteer at Working Together too.
