Formby Walk Of
Photograph by Patrick
FORMBY Village came to a stand still as it was taken over, on the 25 March 2005, by the traditional Walk Of
Witness on Good Friday.
This year's walk had more participants than the last few years and was hailed as a huge success by the Formby Churches Together group who organised it.
The event started with the processions of witness that set off from the Grapes Pub and from the Formby
Library ending at the village centre where a service was held in the open air. The service was conducted by the Chair of the Churches Together, Formby group. Opening the
service was the hymn "There is a Green Hill Far Away". The Address was
given by Rev. Howard Sharp, Moderator Mersey Province, United Reformed Church. Prayers were read out by members of Formby, St Anne's
Church. The closing Hymn was "When I Survey The Wondrous Cross."
John Chalcraft said:- "I have never seen as many people attend
this service before. We were lucky to have very good weather this year and this has brought out all ages from very young to the very old. Churches Together, Formby, would like thank all those who have helped prepare and taken part in this act of worship. We would also like to thank Merseyside Police who helped make the event run
smoothly and safely."
