Tower Hamlets Peace Walk

Here’s some news we were sent from Tower Hamlets LGBT Community Forum

The Tower Hamlets LGBT Community Forum in partnership with Local Voices, on behalf of Tower Hamlets Council, are leading a Peace Walk in the borough as an address to hate and violence.

This will take place on Monday 14th October 2019, meeting at The Shaheed Minar Memorial in the southwest corner of Altab Ali Park at 2.15pm.

We will set off at 2.30pm on a route taking us through Brick Lane, past the location of one of the nail bombing attacks of 1999, then on to Bethnal Green Road, past Weavers Field, heading back to Whitechapel Road, before turning on to Cambridge Heath Road and heading to St Johns Church on Bethnal Green (route may be subject to change).

The second part of the event will be held at St John on Bethnal Green, 200 Cambridge Heath Road. London E2 9PA and begin at 3.30pm and end at 6.30pm.

There will be light refreshments and short speeches/presentations from representatives of peace supporting organisations talking about the impact of hate crime. There will also be activities and performances with some time for networking at the end.

Hate crime effects all people and all communities and everyone is welcome to attend.

If you would like to join us along route then please email for route details and meeting points. If you have any access needs then please email to discuss these with us. If you cannot join us for the walk then you are welcome to join us for the second half of the event at 3.30pm.

I hope to see you at the walk.  Please share this invitation and poster with your colleagues, contacts and service users.
