The Burgh Bypass Walk
At half past one from the village hall
The coach transported one and all
To Layfords , the starting post
Greeted by the mayor, our congenial host.
Who gave his speech of commemoration
To mark this occasion of celebration.
Father Terry the bypass blessed
And photographs were taken by the press
Our senior resident Gladys Waite
Cut the ribbon and off we set!
The crowd processed for over 2 miles
Everybody happy all faces with smiles
At Tastee Farm the coach awaited
The community spirit of all were elated.
Back to the village hall we went
And on display for this special event
A magnificent cake
For all to partake
A raffle was held at the end of the day
For town enhancements the proceeds to pay.
