On the 6th of August 1945 the first atomic bomb to be used against an enemy was dropped on the city of Hiroshima, in Japan.
Now every year on that day at Willen Lake in Milton Keynes, a ceremony is held in memory of the victims and to promote peace. As many as 200 peace lanterns are floated out across the water during the ceremony, as darkness falls. Each lantern is decorated with words and pictures of peace.
Last week I showed you some photos from the ceremony as part of my Distance Project, but this week I’m showing you more of what went on at the lakeside.
