“A very acceptable collection of fruit and vegetables for the Navy”

The home produce donated by Newbury St Nicolas churchgoers at their harvest festival was gratefully received by the Navy.

The following letter has been received by the Rector from the Vegetable Products Committee, Newbury and District Branch, for the distribution of fruit, vegetables, etc, to the Navy and Army, a quantity of fruit and vegetables having been sent from the Harvest Thanksgiving:

October 4th, 1915
Dear Sir,

Will you kindly convey the thanks of this Committee to those who contributed the very acceptable collection of fruit and vegetables for the Navy received from your church.

The consignment is sent to the Naval Base at Aberdeen and will I am sure be appreciated by the men of the Fleet.

Yours faithfully

J H Godding
Hon. Sec.
