Seaford Quakers hold candlelit vigil on Nagasaki Day

A CANDLELIT vigil will be held on Nagasaki Day on Tuesday August 9, from 8.30pm-9pm in Seaford Peace Garden, Crouch Gardens.

Local people will commemorate the hundreds of thousands of men, women and children who died as a result of the nuclear bombing of Nagasaki in Japan on August 9, 1945.

It is being organised by Seaford Quaker Meeting.

Everyone is welcome to attend the vigil and is encouraged to bring a candle in a jam jar.

Seaford Quaker Meeting spokesperson Jenny Wistreich said: “We should never forget the horror and destructive potential of nuclear weapons, and work towards getting rid of all nuclear weapons as set out in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

“We should certainly not be replacing Trident at a cost of £100 billion.”
