Harvey's Service

Packed house for Harvey’s Thanksgiving

It was standing room only as St Thomas a Becket church was packed for the annual service of Harvest Thanksgiving, arranged by nearby Harvey’s Brewery. After a welcome from the Head Brewer, Miles Jenner, musical accompaniment was by the accomplished Sussex Harmony choir and an entertaining address by the Priest of St Thomas’, Brother George.

After the service, it was off to the Bridge Wharf Brewery yard for the traditional dancing-in of the Old Ale – and time to sample some of the new season’s beer.

Here’s a brief snapshot of the service:
