For the first time for many a long year, Civic Sunday processed out into glorious sunshine which held for the rest of the day, and for the first time your editor can remember, there was a small crowd at the top of the High Street to wave them on. This year Cicic Sunday fell on June 30th. Starting at Station Road at 10.30am, the procession, headed by the Stone Scout & Guide band, the parade marched to the Civic Service at St Michael’s and St Wulfads before returning for a Civic Reception in Market Square.
