Today, Sunday, a Silent Vigil to mark the 72nd Anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing took place by the Ginkgo Tree in Crawley’s Tilgate Park.
One of those participating was Laura Moffatt, MP for Crawley [1997-2010]
After a Minute’s Silence, we walked down to the Peace Garden
And then walked round Tilgate Lake
And returned to the Ginkgo Tree and its Plaque
