Palm Sunday Urgent Update

Dear Friends

If you were thinking of joining us for the Palm Sunday walk from Silchester tomorrow please read on as we have had to change the start point!

We have assessed the level of groundwater on the route and decided the puddle (lake!) between the Village and the start of the drove is now too deep to cross and unlikely to recede before 9:30 am tomorrow. 

To keep everyone safe (and hopefully dry) the start of the walk has therefore been moved to the walls car park (Wall Lane, Silchester)    

We will meet at the walls car park at 9:30 am to begin the walk.   A steward or two will be at the Village Hall to direct/transport anyone over the walls car park who hasn’t got this message.

The Walls car park offers plenty of parking and the path from the car park to the drove is relatively wide and well drained.    It would still be worth wearing wellies or walking boots and bringing a waterproof coat or umbrella, although the forecast for tomorrow now looks more encouraging!

Just to confirm arrangements:

9:30  – Palm Sunday walk with Bobby the donkey from Silchester Walls Car park

10:30 – Palm Sunday service in St. Mary the Virgin with hot cross buns served after the service.

Do pass on this message to anyone who you know was planning to join us for the walk

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow Steve
