MORE than 130 people took part in Southampton’s 17th annual peace walk.

The event attracted people of all ages and religions from Southampton and the surrounding area. They set off from the Peace Fountain in East Park and took more than five hours to visit various places of worship in the city.

After visiting the Medina mosque the walkers had lunch at the Vedic temple in Radcliffe Road before completing their tour at St Mary’s Church.

The event was organised by David Vane, secretary to Southampton Council of Faiths.

He said: “It’s a case of educating people about what these places of worship are all about and showing solidarity between the different faiths.

“We want to spread peace, respect and harmony.”
