Saturday (9th)

Peace Walk down Tottenham

This Saturday marks the beginning of the 100 days of peace – ancient tradition of truce around the Olympic Games.
To celebrate we are holding a peace walk – and launching a CitySafe Zone – on Tottenham High Road from 11am-1pm. It would be great if a small group from Rainbow could join and be part of this,
About 100 people from Haringey Citizens will meet at 11am at Tottenham Green and accompanied by band, will walk up to Spurs inviting shops to be part of the CitySafe scheme
There we will be welcomed by steel pans and have refreshments and speeches – and a visit from a friendly police helicopter! All finished by 1pm.
Do give me a call / email if you would like to join and have any ideas.
BEER @ Gilpin Bell
Supporting local business is essential in Tottenhams recovery as a local feel good factor.  After the peacewalk, few of us are going for a drink at the gilpin bell to get a pint of redemption which is a small local brewery in Tottenham that use renewable resources and promotoe local trade.

Then from 2:30pm-4:30pm
