Today we are running into Wrexham in Wales.

We arrive at Acton Park Primary School.

The children have been very busy preparing artwork for the Peace Run.

The children display their artwork and read out their 'Peace Pledges'.

Jana invites everyone to enjoy a moment of Peace in their heart.

Now Jana is demonstrating some very 'unpeaceful' behaviour.

One runner is injured, so in an act of 'peaceful' behaviour, the other runner carries him along the Peace Run route in a firemans lift.

The school receives a Certificate of Appreciation from the Peace Run for the incredible work they have done.

Now we run to the nearby park, Acton Park.

Many people have gathered for the unveiling of a Peace statue, donated to the park by the Peace Run.

Stephen Thomas is our MC for the ceremony, welcoming everyone in Welsh and in English.

Ms Sue LLoyd, the Deputy Head teacher at Acton Park Primary speaks about the park and how it is a valuable resource for the community and the schoolchildren.

The children from Acton Park Primary offer their poems and pledges for Peace.

The children sing two songs for everyone.

Poems by the founder of the Peace Run, Sri Chinmoy, are read out by various people.

The Peace Torch is passed around.

Councillor Mark Pritchard offers some very moving, heartfelt words.
