UNCERTAIN times often mean the need for large scale remedies and the local authority hopes it has the answer in the form of a peace week.
Seven days of activities have been planned to mark Hillingdon's Week of Peace which runs from September7-14.
Hillingdon Council, together with the Hillingdon Interfaith Network (HIFN), the Metropolitan Police and other groups are organising this year's events which have the title Peace is when people get along.
From exhibitions to walks and fun runs, Hillingdon Week of Peace is full of borough-wide events. There is also a poetry competition, open to all ages, to get the whole community involved. The closing date is August 31
Councillor David Routledge, who is backing the scheme, said: "Hillingdon's Week of Peace is all about bringing people together from all areas of society to celebrate peace for all.
"We hope that Hillingdon residents and visitors will take part in this year's events and show their commitment to creating a united community."
Week of Peace has been fully recognised since September 2001 and last year Hillingdon ran a poster design competition. The winning poster, designed by Emily Wrycraft from West Drayton, is the focus of all of this year's Hillingdon Week of Peace publicity.
