Meeting for a 9.00am start at Belmont Community Centre. Dogs on leads welcome. Finish time is approximate.

The Bishop of Hereford warmly invites visitors to the cathedral during opening hours, where they may pause for reflection, and perhaps say a prayer and light a candle at the shrine of St Thomas of Hereford.

Also known as the National Monument Against Violence and Aggression, this magnificent 27ft statue built from 100,000 confiscated knives and blades will come to the city on Monday 14 June and will remain in place outside the West door of Hereford Cathedral until 12 July.
The Knife Angel will be located outside the cathedral and will be free to visit with no need for visitors to book in advance. Relevant precautions, including a one-way system around the Knife Angel and volunteer stewarding teams, will be in place during the day to help welcome and guide visitors.

Prior to lockdown, the Angel toured around the UK and has become a national monument against violence and aggression in all its forms.
