Speakers were invited along to give talks on peace, justice and humanitarian projects at the event, which was part funded by Littlehampton Town Council.

Many topics were explored, including peace work in Sierra Leone, Balfour and the effect on Palestine, peace and those coping with health, as well as a poem about migrants.

Visitors could take the time to write a message of peace on a heart, which was hung on a peace tree, create an origami dove of peace, or buy items from a refreshments and bric-a-brac stall, which raised more than £50 on the day.
