On Monday 21 September from 10 am to 12 noon, Wantage Methodist Chapel will be open to mark the United Nations International Day of Peace. Images, words and music will be projected in the Chapel to mark the day. The day was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981. In 2002 the General Assembly officially declared September 21 as the permanent date for the International Day of Peace. Peace Day has grown to include millions of people in all parts of the world, and each year events are organized to commemorate and celebrate the day.

This year the theme is "Shaping Peace Together". Help to celebrate the day by spreading compassion, kindness and hope in the face of the pandemic. Stand together with the UN against attempts to use the virus to promote discrimination or hatred. Join us so that we can shape peace together.

The Chapel looks a bit bare without them, but the garlands have found a good home and were taken to Framlands Care Home. The group have various projects on the go. Some are knitting for...
