Walk of witness

A large crowd turned up to take part in a Walk of Witness on Good Friday (April 19th) which was organised by Churches Together in Melton Mowbray. The event started at the King’s Head in Nottingham Street and then moved to the Market Place. The short act of worship was conduced by Melton Mowbray Team Parish Rector, the Revd Kevin Ashby. Refreshments were served afterwards in St Mary's Church.
