The meeting was well attended and very successful, despite the fact that our speaker Janet Fenton, from Scottish CND, was delayed for two hours due to problems on trains.

She gave a very informative talk on Trident and the consequences should such weapons be deployed. She supplied us with leaflets and a list of websites.

The meeting was attended by representatives of the Berwick Justice Not War Coalition, who demonstrate peacefully the first Saturday of every month in front of the Town Hall in Berwick. They have been in action since 2001 and are in need of more support. Email perry.pam@btinternet.com

There was general agreement that the vast sums of taxpayers’ money to be spent on Trident could be better invested in the NHS. There will be a vote in Parliament this year on the renewal of Trident.
