Spring Walk for Peace

1st April 2014 Send Off for the Spring Walk For Peace organ­ised by Scot­tish CND
At least 30 plucky singers turned up out­side the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment to give the Spring Peace Walk a rous­ing send-off. The weath­er was play­ing an April Fool where Spring was con­cerned, it was very wet and cold. How­ev­er the walk­ers were in fine spir­its as they lis­tened to words of encour­age­ment from MSPs and we struck up The Free­dom Come All Ye to start them on their jour­ney. We escort­ed the walk­ers up the Roy­al Mile as far as St Giles and sang lusti­ly as we went. A few of us found to our cost that singing whilst walk­ing up a steep hill was not easy. They may have been wet but the walk­ers young and old, even the one in a bug­gy, had a spring in their step as they head­ed into the rain and mist.
