For over a Hundred years the Churches of Hatherleigh have celebrated the day when Christ ascended in to Heaven, (Ascension Day). The Silver Band led the procession with the younger church members in eager attendance while dotting parents and grandparents watched as they went past.
Hatherleigh's priest is the main stay as he leads the prayers around the homesteads of the town, keeping the spiritual life alive and well.
The Hatherleigh Church Sunday Schools parade their banner around the town to celebrate the day Jesus joined his dad.
