Good crowd of people attend Bourne's Walk of Witness on Good Friday




A good crowd of people attended the Bourne Walk of Witness event today (Good Friday).

It started at 10am from Bourne United Reformed Church, where Father Chris Atkinson from Bourne Abbey Church gave an address and those assembled sang a hymn. Dozens followed Peter Squires as he ably carried the cross to St Gilbert's Church where there was a song.

The crowd then marched past Sainsbury's in Exeter Street before finishing at Bourne Baptist Church where the Rev Robert Sheard gave the message.

Banners were also carried and in all, the event lasted about two hours.

Roland Smith, secretary of Churches Together in Bourne which organises the event, said there was a good crowd of people - perhaps, in part, because of the bright sunshine and warm weather.

He said: "The baptist church was very crowded and I think we had a few more this year. I even saw a lady with a pushchair which you might not get if Easter was earlier and it was colder.

"There was a good mix of conversation in the church afterwards with people from different churches engaging, which is what it's all about. Overall, I thought it went very well."
