Remembrance 2014 in Lambeth

image

A variety of events took place to mark the Remembrance season, several of them focussing very strongly on Peace.

On Saturday 8th November from 5pm there was a Peace Walk from Roupell Park estate to Tulse Hill estate - in torrential rain! - and then a Peace Gathering of more than 50 people in the Jubilee Hall with welcome hot soup, peace messages, songs, candles and refreshments. All the result of an initiative by Revd Richard Dormandy, Vicar of Holy Trnity Tulse Hill.

On Sunday 9th November from 10.30am the Annual Remembrance Service, organised by Roger Bowdery, took place at the War Memorial on Sreatham Common. Dr Smarajit Roy laid a poppy wreath on behalf of FTiL.

Then on Armistice Day, 11th November, South Bank Churches organised a peace event, led by Steve Chalke, in St George's RC Cathedral for year 6 and year 7 students from 19 schools. Starting at 10.30am, the event led into the 2-minute silence at 11am.

Lambeth Country Show 2014 - the 40th year!

It ended early with a torrential deluge at 4.30pm on the Sunday, but by then 18 volunteers had looked after the Inter Faith Stall since 11am on Saturday, engaging with members of the public to enter the inter faith quiz, write a prayer for peace and communal harmony, or collect information on inter faith activity.

 

 

Inter Faith Week 2013

The Faith in the Community Event at the Town Hall on 21st November 2013 has been judged a great success, with almost 100 people attending. There were 17 stalls from different faith groups and other organisations. The speeches by Chief Supt. Matt Bell and Cllr. Lib Peck were both very good, as were Saleha Jaffer speaking more briefly about the Health and Belief project and Elizabeth Maytom about the Foodbank. The Council's support was crucial and we are deeply grateful for the interest taken by Cllr Lorna Campbell.
