A remembrance ceremony to mark the anniversary of the Hiroshma & Nagasaki bombings will be held on Saturday.

Peace campaigners will gather in Victoria Park, in Ballards Lane, Finchley, to pay tribute to the thousands killed in Hiroshima, in Japan, on August 5, 1945 and in Nagasaki three days later.

This year marks the 69th anniversary since an atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima and people are asked to bring a poem, a song, or a memory to share.

The ceremony will begin at 11am by the commemorative cherry tree in the park.

A most appropriate Remembrance Ceremony held by a Commemorative Cherry Tree, in Victoria Park on Saturday morning and joined by the Mayor and Lady Mayoress. A respectful gathering of friends - reciting Poems and sharing thoughts in memory of the human loss, and suffering that followed the Aug 5th bombing of 1945. And then .......suddenly ....out of the blue.....the occasion is jeopardised by the emergence of crazy Tirza and her crew of saddos, who started distributing bags of anti- tory propaganda. I mean....PLEASE! The bewildered congregation just stared, shocked at the lack of respect shown by this self righteous, self promoting, and ignorant group - their actions tantamount to handing out unrelated propaganda at a Holocaust remembrance - so sick!
