Dear All,
Firstly, THANK YOU for your support for the 1914 Peace Rally on Saturday! It went brilliantly and was lots of fun! Huge thanks to Hazel Roy for all her hard work! And thank you to everyone who came along to see it and support it- much appreciated. Blogpost and photos to follow.

There is a planning meeting tomorrow (Mon 4th) to plan the forthcoming WWI Day School. It's at the earlier time of 4pm at Cornerhouse. Please could you let Alison Ronan know if you plan to attend so she can look out for you.

Normal 'No Glory in War Manchester' meetings will resume in September.

Thanks all!
Best wishes,
