There will be tea, coffee and hot cross buns at Summerhill Methodist Church from 10.30 am. The procession to Troopers Hill will leave at 11.30 am. The service starts at noon. In the event of bad weather the service will be held at Summerhill Methodist Church, 5 Air Balloon Rd. Here’s a 2004 video of the event.
