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.
