Dear Members and Supporters of Faiths Together in Croydon,
I hope you are enjoying the sunny weather and planning for a long hot Summer ahead.
The newsletter is full of information as usual and I hope that you enjoy it and are able to pass it on to members of your communities and other friends for their information.
Please do note that we have an event coming up on May 4th on the topic of Respect, this follows on from the very well attended event in the Autumn on Peace. I do hope that you will be able to come along and join in the discussions.
We are looking for 6 people to ride a bike in the Mayors Bike race on 18th May, could it be you?
Then we are having our annual picnic and bike ride on July 9th so do put that date in your diary. It is on a Sunday again this year, next year we will be trying to plan it for a bank holiday Monday. It is just too dangerous to hold it on a Saturday. The actual Big Lunch this year is during Ramadan so we have moved our picnic, but see below for details of a big community event at Box park on June 18/19th.
If you can’t ride a bike, just come to the picnic. We will be stopping at 2 places of worship and we are still working on the venue for the picnic, but it is very likely it will be in the grounds of Crystal Palace Football Club, and we hope we get to meet a lot of our FTiC supporters!
The article on Dialogues of Peace, by our vice chair, Les Kemp, is well worth a read. Also, there is information from St Christopher’s Hospice about a project they are running. If you want someone to talk to your community please contact Carol Trower or go along to the Braithwaite hall in May and find out more.
Please do send in information about events that you are holding if you want to advertise them to a wider audience.
I look forward to seeing you at the picnic
All the best
Chair, Faiths Together in Croydon
