Oakham Churches Together hands out Easter hot cross buns during Good Friday Walk of Witness





Hot cross buns bearing an Easter message were handed out in Oakham on Good Friday.

Oakham Churches Together organised the annual Walk of Witness, which set off from St John and St Anne at 10.30am and proceeded through the town centre to the Buttercross. The cross was carried by Richard Allen, from the methodist church.

As the walk processed along Westgate to the Market Place, visitors were given hot cross buns, which were kindly supplied by the Co-op in Oakham and wrapped in a serviette bearing the Easter message.
