MORE than 100 people attended a Harvest Festival Service at The Little Chapel in The Fen, near Upware on Sunday. A total of �526.70 was collected with �365 going to the Teenage Cancer Trust. There was also a retiring collection for the maintenance of the chapel.

Dr Ray Gambell, OBE, of Landbeach, took the service, which is always held on the first Sunday in October. This was the 125th such service (the present chapel having been built in 1884). The lessons were read by Mrs Jean Nash, of Swaffham Bulbeck, and Cllr. Allen Alderson, of Reach.

The Little Chapel in The Fen has recently been re-roofed at a cost of more than �8,000.
