Vigil to commemorate World War 1 conscientious objectors

Tottenham Quakers will be holding a vigil on Thursday 15th May, to commemorate International Conscientious Objectors’ day.

The vigil will involve silent recollection in the Quaker tradition, interspersed with readings of texts and poems. It will be held from 6.30 to 7.30 pm, at:
Friends Meeting House
594 Tottenham High Road
N17 9TA
Buses 149, 259, 279, 341, 349 and 476 all go past the Meeting House, which is near Bruce Grove station, and 1 mile from Seven Sisters station. More contact details on their website.
All are welcome irrespective of creed. Tea and light refreshments will be offered after the Vigil.
