An-Nisa Network hosted a diverse and vibrant Eid community event on Sunday 2nd September at Sherwood Mosque.  The event went really well, by far the most diverse one we have done.  The weather was on our side, so the event was very well attended.  Amongst the guests were:

  • MP Alex Norris and MP Vernon Coaker
  • Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping
  • Councillor Adele Williams

Alex opened the event for us, we followed with a short presentation on hajj.  This was very well received.

Paddy got involved in making the chappati making workshop.

We all ate food together, enjoyed the entertainment and made friendships with people from different cultures and backgrounds.  (well atleast that was what people who attended did, me and my team were rushed off our feet looking after everyone ? )

Some of the feedback  received was:

  • “…what a well organised programme u guys put up yesterday… we had a lovely family time.  My little one enjoyed a lot…congratulations to everyone who worked hard for it.”
  • “was a realy good event I was very impressed…… well done to everyone involved.  My kids enjoyed it and they are fussy”
  • “gratitude An Nisa, it was a great atmosphere and lovely event Robina with so much of interest”
  • “absolutely, brilliant atmosphere and event”
  • “so proud of you all to bring such integration and harmony x applaud to you all”

Thank you for your support in enabling us to continue to deliver services for the benefit of our communities.
