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.

Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

Cemeteries Management Plan Review

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

As part of our Cemeteries Management Plan Review for Mākara, Karori and Tawa cemeteries, we’re looking at how grave sites should be maintained. Many people like to place tributes on the graves of their loved ones, but the decorations can blow away, creating rubbish and causing pollution.

We'd like to do a quick poll: should plastic decorations be banned from the city’s cemeteries? Let us know what you think here: www.letstalk.wellington.govt.nz...

To share your suggestions about how best to manage graveside tributes and for more information, visit: www.letstalk.wellington.govt.nz...

Feedback closes at 5pm Friday 31 July 2020. Your feedback will help us to prepare a draft plan, which will go out for formal consultation later this year.
