Palm Sunday Procession

On a glorious Spring Palm Sunday morning, the parishes of Long Crendon, Chearsley and Nether Winchendon celebrated Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem with a combined service at St Nicholas’ Church, Chearsley. Procedings began at Chearsley Village Hall with a continental breakfast, and palm branches made from old newspapers. Then under a cloudless sky, all processed down to the church led by “Lottie”, Alex Wall Morris’s sweet natured little brown pony, posing on this occasion as a donkey! Lottie was totally unphased by everything, even the wonderful pealing of the bells as the procession arrived at church. Many thanks to her minders Livvy and Claire. Reverend Richard Phillips, vicar of our three parishes, led a joyful Family Holy Communion Service to a full church.
