Forthcoming meetings

Hiroshima Day commemoration, Wednesday 6th August 2014

Lantern for Hiroshima and Nagasaki As in previous years, Kingston Peace Council/CND will be gathering beside the Thames near the bandstand in Canbury Gardens, Kingston, on Wednesday 6th August 2014 at 8.30 pm, to commemorate the dropping of atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, and to remember the hundreds of thousands of victims. Please join us. Bring white flowers and biodegradable lanterns (small boats with night-lights -- Rosemary suggests to use half-grapefruit skins) to float on the river if you wish.

Welcome to KPC/CND

We are a local group providing a focus for people in Kingston and the surrounding area who wish to work for international understanding, the peaceful resolution of conflict, the abolition of nuclear weapons and an end to the arms race and general disarmament. We publish a monthly newsletter Kingston Peace News.

Our activities include:

  • Monthly meetings: we meet on the second Wednesday of every month at 7.45pm, to discuss current business and campaigning activities, share ideas, listen to invited speakers or watch videos. Visitors and new ideas are always welcome.
  • A regular street stall: on the first and third Saturdays of every month, 11am-2pm, in the market, next to the entrance to the parish church.
  • Stalls at local fairs to publicise our activities and raise funds
  • Vigils and public meetings and other events to raise public awareness of peace-related issues.
  • Letter writing and lobbying
  • Supporting other peace and justice campaigns, in particular the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. As well as being the Kingston Peace Council, we are the CND local group for Kingston, part of London Region CND.
  • Taking part in regional and national demonstrations

We are affiliated to Network for Peace, where you can find information about other local peace groups in the UK, national organisations working for peace, and a comprehensive listing of future events organised by other groups -- demonstrations, talks, concerts etc -- in this area and throughout the UK.
