Despite the misty rain and cool breeze the Good Friday ‘Walk of Witness’ organised by Churches Together in Melton began at 10am.

Led by a cross bearing Jesus and Roman guards in full costume, a procession of more than 120 people followed in silence along Nottingham Street to the Market Place.

A dramatic rendition of the ‘Stations of the Cross’ then took place to readings, prayers and Easter hymns.

David Coxhead, of the United Reformed Church, said: “Many people were emotionally moved as Jesus was taken to the cross. It was a truly ecumenical event as members from all the churches in the town took part.”
