According to FAR, the city of Helsinki plans to declare itself a smoke-free city at the beginning of next year. Smokers will be given guidance on giving up the habit.

Kaivoksela Church in the city of Vantaa was completely destroyed by fire on Oct 15. Officials suspect arson. Damages are estimated at 10 million euro. Also a nearby Jehovah's Witness Kingdom Hall was damaged by a suspicious fire. A few months ago Porvoo Cathedral was severely damaged by another arson fire.


Comment: Kaivoksela is in Swedish Gruvsta, a name derived from the word "gruva", ie. mine./Hasse
