Please forward as appropriate

The 'ghost village' of Imber, near Warminster in Wiltshire, was
commandeered by the army in World War II for training purposes, with the
promise that residents could move back after the war. That never happened
and now the village is open for just a few days every year when the army
are not actively training on Salisbury Plain.

It will be great to see you and friends again on New Year's Eve at Imber.


This year's Peace Vigil in Imber Village will take place on New Year's Eve,
Monday 31 December 2007, at mid-day. We will meet in Imber car park - all

Please bring any suitable words to read aloud on the subject of creating
more peace in the world.
Best wishes and thanks,
