PALM Sunday will be particularly special in Cradley this year, as Bluebell the donkey will be joining the village's Palm Sunday procession.

The procession will start from Cradley Primary School at 10am this Sunday, April 13, and walk down to the war memorial for the Blessing of the Palms at around 10.20am.

This will be followed by Palm Sunday family communion at the church at 10.30am, and tea and biscuits after the service, with proceeds going to the charity Safe Haven for Donkeys in the Holy Land.
