In the spirit of friendship and neighbourliness, West Ham CLP will be supporting a community Iftar (breaking of the fast) as part of our next all members meeting (GC) on 24 July.
Our GC meeting, usually held at 306 High St, Stratford, will instead be at Harold Road Community Centre (170 Harold Rd, E13 0SE). We’ll begin at 7.30 as usual and our guest speaker is Professor Ken Spours, from the Institute of Education.
West Ham CLP, together with our MP Lyn Brown, will then join a community Iftar organised by The Sheba Project and supported by the Big Iftar initiative, which was launched last year, and encourages people of different faiths and none to come together during the month of Ramadan to share Iftar.
The West Ham Big Iftar, which begins at 8.45, should be a fun evening, with delicious food and great conversations. Members are welcome to invite friends and neighbours and everyone is invited to bring a dish to share.
Harold Road Community centre is no more than a 10 minute walk from either Plaistow or Upton Park station and less than a 10 min walk away from Kennedy Close stop on the 241, 262, 473 or St Anthony’s Road stop on the 104 or 238.
We look forward to seeing you at GC and the Iftar after.
