Promoting a positive, caring outlook, for the one life we have

Annual Peace Walk

Annual Peace Walk

Four NEH members attended this important and enjoyable community event on September 15th.  The picture  includes the Bishop of Newcastle, the Lord Mayor of Newcastle and the Lady Mayoress and the Lieutenant of Newcastle, all of whom did the walk. About 150 people strolled from the Hindu Temple to the Church of the Venerable Bede, on to the Central Mosque and then to the Sikh Gurdwara.  The walkers, including several families, were plied with refreshments and short prayers and readings at each venue and were ably escorted by a local police team. The walk exemplifies the North East’s multicultural population and their desire to live together in peace, harmony and understanding.                                                                                                                                                                                             Mike Turner
