Organised by Marlow resident Rhiannon Scott who now resides in Beaconsfield, the march will be on the one-month anniversary of George Floyd’s death.

Mr Floyd, an African-American, died in Minneapolis on May 25, after Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, knelt on his neck for just over eight minutes.

Following Mr Floyd’s death, several riots, protests and marches have taken place across the United States and the world.

She said: “Like you, I just want to show that I am listening and I am really upset by some of the things happening.

“I want to be part of a town that shows it cares.

I am so glad that children are being encouraged to join what will be a safe, responsibly organised and socially distanced event.

“The idea of protesting can be nerve wracking so hopefully we will give them a positive experience that will stay with them for life - that we can stand up for what we believe and cause a little disruption to make an important point.”

After the walk, the end protest will end with a ‘taking the knee’ salute.
