Hiroshima and Nagasaki remembered: Southampton

Sunday 07 August 2022
19:45 to 21:00


Southampton CND marks the dropping of the atomic bombs on Japan in 1945 at the annual public meeting on Sunday
7 August 2022 in Riverside Park by the children’s play area and miniature railway (next to the river - not quite where the map pin is).
Assemble from 7.45 pm for a prompt 8pm start. We are pleased that the Sheriff of Southampton, Cllr Valerie Laurent, will say a few words before our main speaker Sophie Bolt, Vice-Chair of CND.
At about 8.30 pm the public will be invited to line up to launch paper boats containing a candle from the landing stage (cash donations). If it is too windy the paper boats will be laid out on the grass in the form of the CND symbol. The event will finish at about 8.45 pm. We hope that you will be able to attend and to encourage your friends and family to come too.
