A SPECIAL ceremony to mark the 70th anniversary of the first atomic bomb being dropped will be held at Great Malvern Priory on Saturday (August 8).
Malvern Churches Justice and Peace Group will be hosting a vigil at 11.15am to commemorate the destruction of Hiroshima on August 6, 1944 and at Nagasaki three days later.
Other man-made and natural disasters will also be remembered – at 12pm there will be a short meditation in the Priory led by Archdeacon Robert Jones. All are welcome to either or both events. A photographic exhibition, Silent Voices, will show pictures of the village of Bil’n in the West Bank, Palestine, taken by the children there. This will be shown at Great Malvern Priory until August 14 between 9am and 5.30pm.
