Palm Sunday Procession, 13 April 2003

Carying banners made in their Easter workshops, pupils from St Mary's Infant and Junior schools led the Palm Sunday procession through the village.  Many children were in costume as we made our way to St Mary's joyfully re-enacting the triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The Procession was through Fawley Drive; Southview Way; Finchcroft Lane; Noverton Lane; High Street to War Memorial.

At St Mary's Junior School, getting ready for the off
We have to have a leader with four legs

"Tell them the Lord hath need of it."

At one of the stops as we waited for everyone to catch up.
Some dressed up Some carried banners
Some played music as we marched

At the War Memorial the mood changed from the joyous to more sombre.   We listened to a Gospel reading and sang Ride on! Ride on in majesty before leaving for our own churches.

Paul Broekman's brass group played for us.
