Who we are

Who are we?

The Tavistock Peace Action Group is a group of ordinary people committed to working to achieve a peaceful and nuclear free world.  It has been in existence for over 40 years and is affiliated the national Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND).  The group promotes initiatives for peace.

What is involved?

The group holds a regular monthly meeting (see below) and organises public meetings and film showings.  Over the years we have undertaken many different activities, including numerous public meetings, an exhibition about the damage caused by nuclear testing in the Pacific, a day conference called ‘New Notions of Peace’’, a World War One Exhibition that toured schools, demonstrations, and street stalls.  We have taken part in many national peace and anti-nuclear campaigns.  We held regular street vigils to protest against the invasion of Iraq.  We currently hold a ‘Ceasefire in Gaza’ vigil in Bedford Square, Tavistock, between 4 and 5 pm every Friday.  We hope to arrange a public meeting about the plight of the Palestinians in July 2024.  Our years of anti-nuclear campaigning continue to the present as we publicise the dangers of cutting up redundant nuclear submarines at Devonport dockyard.

How to get involved?

Tavistock Peace Action Group meets on the first Tuesday of each month at the United Reformed Church, Russell St., Tavistock, at 7.30 pm.  Contact Ginny 07769868480 for more information, email tavypeace@gmail.com, or see our website at  https://tavypeace.org.uk  We welcome all who share our aims and who would like to join us.  There is no membership fee, but donations are always welcome.
