40th anniversary walk from Cardiff to Greenham
2021 marks 40 years since the first women marched from Wales to set up a peace camp outside RAF Greenham Common. The Greenham Women Everywhere anniversary celebrations culminate in a re-creation of this march, leaving Cardiff on Thursday 26 August and arriving at Greenham on Friday 3 September for a weekend of festivities.
The walk comes into Bristol along the A38 on Saturday 28 August, aiming to reach the Quaker Meeting House in Cabot Circus by 6.00pm. Please come along and welcome them into Bristol; meet up near to Flo - Jo Fabrics on Gloucester Road from about 5pm. Flo-Jo has made a brilliant banner and is also running some free banner making workshops Banner workshop|Greenham Women Everywhere|Flo-Jo Fabrics .
You can welcome the walkers with bunting, banners, songs etc, and then if you wish, join the final stretch of the walk into Cabot Circus.
The walk heads to Bath the following day, Sunday 29 August, leaving from Bristol Central Quaker Meeting House, Cabot Circus at 10.00am. The route goes via Bitton, which is a good place for those who don’t plan on walking the whole way into Bath to catch a bus back to Bristol.
This is a women-led event and men are welcome.
