4 days to go!
Some of the team were down on site at St Mary’s this morning and the site is rapidly being transformed into a venue fit for a Pope! You can see from the photos below that the stage has been erected and trackway has been put down on the running track to enable to Popemobile to travel around it when the Holy Father arrives at ‘The Big Assembly’.
Every participant at ‘The Big Assembly’ will also receive a goodie bag when they arrive, the contents of which have been donated by St Mary’s University College, Cafod, the Catholic Association of Teachers in Schools and Colleges and various local businesses. The contents of the goodie bags have begun to arrive today – starting with 4000 bottles of water! Geraldine Davies from St Mary’s has kindly co-ordinated the organisation of the goodie bags and her team of helpers will begin to put these together later this week. You can see Geraldine unloading the bottles of water below.
