Members of Saddleworth Peace Group will be marking Hiroshima Memorial Day this evening with a special service in Uppermill.

The group will meet at 7pm near the stepping stones at King George the fifth playing fields (behind Uppermill Library) to remember the anniversary date.

There will be speakers and the lighting of 70 candles to commemorate the dropping of the atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima exactly 70 years ago.
