Council Statement About Open Top Bus Parade And Reception

This from Herefordshire Council:
In celebration of the achievements of Hereford FC over the 2015/2016 season, Herefordshire Council have invited the players, officers and volunteers of Hereford FC to a Civic Reception at the Town Hall.
Weather permitting, it will be preceded by an open top bus parade through the city for the players of Hereford FC on Monday 23 May.
The bus will leave Widemarsh Gate at midday and travel up Widemarsh Street, turning left through High Town and stopping at the Old House for a team photograph.
The parade will conclude on St. Owen Street at 1pm.
Councillor Brian Wilcox, Chairman of Herefordshire Council, said:
“We are delighted at the club’s success this season.  We are all incredibly proud of Hereford FC’s achievements so far and wish them all the best for Sunday.”
Jon Hale, Chairman of Hereford FC said:
“We would like to thank our incredible supporters who have turned out fantastically throughout the season.  We are grateful to Herefordshire Council for providing this opportunity.
“While Monday lunchtime may be disappointing timing for some, we felt it was important to support the one opportunity for our players and fans to come together before the players travel back to their homes, families and normal working life for the summer on Monday afternoon.’

Meanwhile the club have asked for help 'to provide an escort (on foot) for the bus as it crosses the city centre so any volunteers who can join staff as escorts would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone who has already agreed to be an escort, or who believes they can help, is asked to come to Edgar Street for 9.50am on Monday morning for a safety briefing at 10am. A warm welcome is guaranteed!'
