The guests at the launch of The Bath Peace Ceremony 2010

Over thirty people attended the launch of The 2010 Bath Peace Ceremony in The Chairman’s Room at The Guildhall in Bath. Our aim today was to introduce the ‘local-global’ concept to the community and engage support from potential sponsors and contributors. The evening was graciously hosted by Cllr. Sarah Bevan, Madam Chairman of Bath & North East Somerset Council.

“I feel privileged to have taken part in this growing movement and I would like to endorse wholeheartedly Lizzie’s faith in our local community, in the wider UK community and in the global community….. In short the simplicity of this initiative is such that it can reach out and touch the hearts and minds of everyone, regardless of their outlook in life, their status or their creed. When we meet again on the 21st September, The International Day of Peace, perhaps our own pledge can be ‘Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me’.”

As well as a short speech and poetry from me, there was a display of the creative work from last year’s ceremony and the opportunity to talk to our team. It was great to see Bel Mooney and such a cross-section of the community at the event.
