StoptheWar

 

Jackie has been one of the co-ordinators of Kings Lynn and Wisbech StoptheWar since 2003. She has organised and taken part in vigils, leafletings, meetings and groups to attend national demonstrations and conferences in London.

 

In December 2014 she co-organised the event, Making Peace, held in Wisbech’s Rosmini Centre. This involved workshops on poetry, art and music and a concert of poetry and song.  Local artists, and StoptheWar supporters, taking part were William Alderson, Sean Finlay, Cary Outis, Derek Paice, the John Preston Tribute Band, Edwin Salter and Jonathan Toye.

Climate

 

Jackie is committed to fighting climate change and supported local Transition Town groups including Downham and Villages in Transition (DAVIT) and Transition King's Lynn.

 

She also supported the campaign to prevent a mass burn incinerator being built at Saddlebow, King’s Lynn. This was organised by King's Lynn Without Incineraton (KLWIN) and won.
