Helensburgh CND 1 October 2010

We had a full programme over the Hiroshima and Nagasaki anniversaries as the Footprints for Peace walk were visiting us around then too. On August 6th our group met at the cherry trees in Helensburgh for a Hiroshima ceremony followed by floating beautiful lanterns on the Gareloch.

On Sunday the 8th we met the walk as they came into town and provided lunch at Helensburgh pierhead. Some of our group then walked with them to Faslane where they had a die-in at the North gate. On Monday 9th we joined them at Peaton Wood near to Coulport and floated more candles on Loch Long to remember Nagasaki. Tuesday 10th saw the walk returning to Helensburgh for a social evening of eating and chatting in a church hall and afterwards we managed to find beds for 24 people in the town.

We are now planning for our stall at the Helensburgh 2010 Exhibition in October organised by The Rotary Club when we will join 42 other groups for four days in the Victoria Halls.
