England 27 September: Stokenchurch - London

We began our journey from Stokenchurch running through peaceful rural villages and into London along the Grand Union Canal.

Our first appointment was at Vicar’s Green School in Alperton. We were greeted in the playground by a large circle of children dressed in national costume enthusiastically waving flags from all the different countries you can think of.

Steve Pound, the Member of Parliament for North Ealing was there to greet us. His fervent support for the run, for the schools involvement and for the precepts of the founder of the World Harmony Run - Sri Chinmoy - gave us renewed confidence in the unlimited potential of this very special project.

The children led us into their assembly hall where we were warmly greeted by the head teacher, Mary Sergides and an instrumental rendition of the World Harmony Run Song . The school orchestra, under the guidance of Liz Sharma, began the proceedings with a dynamic and very fitting rendition of Ode to Joy.

The children read out passages they had prepared describing what Harmony meant to them. Councillor Amit Kapoor, the Deputy Mayor of Ealing, welcomed the runners.

Vicar’s Green Primary School gave us an overwhelmingly warm welcome and we are grateful to everyone who was there. A candle was lit to preserve the light from our Harmony Torch and we all signed a proclamation entitled ‘Harmony Begins With Me’.

On our way out of the school we made some new friends.

From Alperton we followed the Grand Union Canal all the way into Central London and to the English Office of the European Parliament.

We were kindly welcomed and given a brief history of the European Parliament by Dermott Scott.

We have received several letters of support from British MEP’s and the torch will be greeted in Brussels soon by MEP’s from different countries.

Distance: 65km
