The Harvest Thanksgiving at Yorkley Wood Church was held on Friday, October 6. The Service was fully choral, an anthem being well rendered by the Choir. Dr. Bond entoned the prayers, the Vicar read the first lesson and gave the blessing at the close, the Rev. J. Lawton, Curate-in-charge of the Church of the Good Shepherd, the Lane End, Coleford, reading the second, and preaching an appropriate and excellent sermon. The offertory was divided between the Cottage Hospital, Lydney, and the Church Expenses Fund. The Church was brightly decorated, many joining in the labour of love.
