Participation in Act of Witness in Seaford remains high

The number of people taking part in the procession staged as part of the Act of Witness in Seaford on Good Friday (March 29) was one of the highest ever.

Organiser Laurie Holland said there were almost 200 people in the march, who made their way from St Leonard’s Church through the town.

The giant six foot cross was carried through the town by John Kennett, while Rosemary Holland carried the Churches Together banner.

Laurie said: “There were almost 200 people in the procession which is very good indeed.

“St Leonard’s Church was packed. The weather was beautiful. It was cold but bearable.

“There weren’t so many onlookers as I suppose it was so cold, but the people taking part in the procession was one of the highest we have ever had. It went incredibly well.”

A service was held at St Leonard’s Church before the event, followed by a gathering at Crossways Church.
