Blessed with a glorious day and an influx of new attendees this year’s commemoration was deemed a great tribute to an unflinching hero.
Prominent amongst the speakers honouring Bradlaugh was Barbara Smoker who was President of the National Secular Society for 25 years.
Thank you to all who attended and travelled so far to remember Charles Bradlaugh on his birthday.
Messages of appreciation for him were received from as far a field as California:
Yesterday, I've read about Charles Bradlaugh. It was the first time I've ever heard of him. Today, I checked the Wikipedia entry, and I am in total awe of the man, his principles, and his intrepidity. I plan to learn a lot more about him as soon as possible, but I'm delighted to have "discovered" Mr. Bradlaugh just 3 days before his birthday. I wish I could speak at the commemoration, but I live and work in Los Angeles, California. Could I get more info on the Society, please? Thank you so much, and Happy 183 birthday, Mr. Bradlaugh! [Dan]
Could there be a better indication of Bradlaugh’s global impact.
We look forward to meeting you all again next year.
