3:00pm - West Hendred:
For Palm Sunday – we'll have a short, interactive Family Service
in West Hendred at 3pm with a real live donkey
thanks to Island Farm Donkey Sanctuary. We’ll
remember when Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey
and discover what happened the week before Easter
through stories, props … and treats!
The service will start outside Tames Farm Cottage,
which as you're going down the road through the
village is just a little further south of the
village hall. When you've passed Manor Lane on the
left it's the next turning on the right, a gravel
track. Please walk to the end of this short track.
If coming by car, please park along the road
through the village. At the start of the service
we'll walk along to the church following the donkey.
