Plan for peace on festival's agenda

IN A world which has a history riddled with war and conflict, a group has met to give priority to peace.

On Saturday the first meeting to discuss plans for the Peace Festival next year was held.

Festival co-ordinator Ruth Power said the meeting went well.

"There was a lot of discussion and new ideas put forward," she said.

"Considering so many other things were also on the weekend it was a very good turnout.

"We also received a lot of messages of support from people who couldn't make it but are interested."

Ms Power said the committee was looking to implement a new format.

"We are hoping to have more activities spread over a larger part of the year, with the final event being on the Labour Day weekend of next year," she said.

"So far one particular area of interest is to promote good food and nutrition, and organic gardening.

"There is just so much potential relating to the environment, organic food, food supply, and how the quality of food impacts our wellbeing.

"There will also be another meeting to discuss youth activities and the establishment of a youth club.

"Another overall meeting will be held in June sometime for anyone with more thoughts and ideas."
