Hellenic New Zealand Congress AGM/Greek documentary - free entry

Mee Moi from Mount Cook

Wellington premiere of "Ο Ηρακλής, ο Αχελώος, και η Μεσοχώρα" (Heracles, Acheloos and Mesochora, with English subtitles). The movie will start at 3.30pm after the AGM tea/coffee break as the AGM is being held same day at 2.15pm (all welcome) in the TTC clubrooms.

"The village of Mesochora, as well as the paternal home of the documentary director, is on the banks of the Acheloos river, in the mountain range of Pindos. The area, however, is flooded by the artificial lake created by the diversion of the river.

The documentary unfolds the incredible story of the hostage of the village, the family tragedy of the director himself, and the admirable struggle of the inhabitants of Mesochora."

We would like to thank the director and ERT for providing this film to us free of charge and to Elias Pavlidis for organizing the film to come to Wellington.

Seamus Boyer from Wellington City Council

Kia ora Pōneke, from midday on Wednesday 12 August, Wellington, along with most of New Zealand, will be re-entering Covid-19 Alert Level 2. This will last until midnight on Friday.

It follows the news that in Auckland there are four positive cases of COVID-19 from an unknown source. The Auckland Region will move to Alert Level 3 for the same period.

Here's what we all can do to help:

- Continue or get back to stringent hand hygiene, sneeze and cough into your elbow.​
- If you or a family member are unwell please stay at home and contact Healthline or your GP about getting a test.​
- Practise physical distancing of two metres wherever possible.​
- Consider wearing a mask in public spaces or places where it is hard to physically distance.​

​For more information on health advice or the Alert Levels, please go to: covid19.govt.nz...

We will be updating the Council website and social channels tomorrow. Be kind and stay safe, Wellington. We're all in this together. 💛🖤💛🖤
