The Faithful from Haddenham and Thame came together on Good Friday, 18th April, in a walk of witness, and in observance of Christ's suffering, crucifixion and death.

The Christian group gathered on Townsend Green and processed to St Mary's Parish Church, pausing en route for prayers and a hymn at Banks Parade.

The responsibility for carrying the heavy wooden cross was shared by Pietro Pizzo and Colin Stoker.

A service followed at St Mary's Church, which included mediations on the Easter story, led by members of the local community.
