Whit Friday spirit as churches step out across community

THE wet weather could not dampen spirits as churches across Saddleworth took to the streets for Whit Friday.

The annual Walks of Witness across the villages saw hundreds of locals of all ages step out for the popular event despite rain showers and wind all day.

Banners flew high and the bands rang out as churches marched around their villages or met up in Uppermill for a Joint Service at King George Playing Fields.
