Hundreds gather for Good Friday walk of witness in Maidenhead

The traditional Good Friday Walk of Witness was held in Maidenhead Town Centre yesterday.


The gathering of about 400 people began at Sainsbury's in Providence Place before making its way to the High Street Methodist Church, stopping at stations on the way for hymns, bible readings and prayers.

Maidenhead Street Angels accompanied the walkers to ensure everything ran smoothly and music was provided by the Salvation Army band.

The Walk of Witness, which has been taking place in the town since 1974, ended with a final prayer outside the church in High Street before guests were invited inside for hot drinks and a mountain of hot cross buns.
