A group of peace campaigners organised a vigil to remember those who died from the effects of atom bombs dropped on Nagaski and Hiroshima in Japan.

Paper doves were tied to trees at St Mary’s Parish Church, in St Neots, as part of the event, organised by Christine Green and supported by the St Neots Quakers group.

Weekly vigils take place on Fridays outside the West Door of the church, from 1.15pm till 2.15pm.

“After the Manchester attack we asked people to stand for ‘A Minute for Manchester’ and many people responded,” said Christine Green.

“Sometimes people will ask us what it’s all about, leading to challenging and thought-provoking discussions, which we welcome as part of raising awareness and encouraging people to think about the issues.”
