CroughtonWatch YouTube video, October 2020:
A collection of photos of the Oxfordshire Peace Campaign’s annual march and rally outside USAF Croughton, spanning 2016 to 2019, marking the global ‘Keep Space for Peace’ week each October. Although we can’t be there this year, we mark the event this year with a look back at the past year's events, with a music and works specially created by The Oxford Sea Green Singers.
