Below is a preliminary notice of peace events planned for Wednesday 11 September, two in Wellington and one in Lyttelton. If you are planning something which you would like to have advertised, please send the details as soon as possible as we will have restricted access to email from tomorrow afternoon until Monday 9th September so will not be circulating 'what's on where' listings during that time period.

Please feel free to forward the listings below through your networks.
