Location: From Cockfosters tube, the `Cocfosters Gate of Trent park is only 5 minutes walk. We will be in the field immediately to the right..when you enter the park.. Cafe etc is further ahead.
We have 2 key activities – join the one you prefer.
Part 1. (11.45am to 3pm)
Woodland Walk – from Trent Park Cafe to Camlot Moat & back. The `Enfield Town Circle’ of friends are planning this walk..but all welcome of course. There will be a 5-10 minute `Singing around a Tree’ (Globally synced event) at 12pm – to be facilitated by Lina-Star Spyrou.
Please be on time, as we begin with the 12noon sing-around tree, then commence long exploratory woodland walk to Camlot Moat and back. Expected to take 3hrs+. We will be going at a reasonable steady pace. May not be suitable for everyone as the terran can be difficult at some spots, where we may need to crawl through small spaces, as well as past bramble, muddy patches, roots and other woodland natural hazards. We are not sure if this is suitable for those with walking difficulties, breathing problems, push-chairs, wheel chairs.
Part 2: (3pm to 5pm+)
This is a family-friendly all abilities event – Bring your picnic . Bring blankets to sit on. Bring your drums and other acoustic musical instruments.
There will be a small Eco-ceremony at some point when all have gathered.
Exact location: We will be gathering in the small field closer to the main gate (Cockfoster Gate, Cockfoster Road). Enter the park.. walk past a pond that is on your right. Then turn right into the field …We’ll be there. Look out for groups of people.. Earth flags etc.
Drug policy:
This is a family friendly event. So please refrain from taking any drugs.. for the comfort and ease of everyone present. Thank you.
Safety / Children:
Parents & Guardians are responsible for their own children’s’ safety. Please be aware, there will be dogs in the field. There will be strangers. There will also be ritual items on altar – so do not let children play with such items.

History of Peace Day

Peace One Day - founder Jeremy Gilley at a London Event in October 2012 .
Peace One Day – founder Jeremy Gilley at a London Event in October 2012 .

In 1999, filmmaker Jeremy Gilley founded Peace One Day, a non-profit organisation, and in 2001 Peace One Day’s efforts were rewarded when the member states of the United Nations unanimously adopted the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on 21 September – Peace Day.  Peace One Day’s objective is to institutionalise Peace Day 21 September, making it a day that is self-sustaining, an annual day of global unity, a day of intercultural cooperation on a scale that humanity has never known. Peace One Day is impartial and independent of any government, political persuasion, corporation or religious creed. Through a multi-platform approach, Peace One Day utilises different tools to raise awareness, advocate for Peace Day and engage the global community in its broad observance.
