Members of different churches came together for a march through the City to celebrate the spirit of unity created by the Olympic Games.

Around 50 churchgoers from different denominations carried flags of different countries around Clerkenwell on July 21, led by musicians from Epping Forest Pipe Band.

Band secretary and drummer Ashley Weller said: “It was a fabulous community event and it was lovely for us to be a part of it. We had a great response from everyone we saw.”
