Faith speaking to Faith
Bruce Thompson has been developing good relations with the small but significant Muslim population in Taunton.
So it was that we had been invited by Helal Thafader (pictured) to join in the celebration of Eid which brought together people of all ages from the local area. It is very much a family occasion and marks the end of the 30 days of fasting during Ramadan.
We had to leave before the games and festivities got fully under way but we had a taste of the buffet and the opportunity for some good conversation with a very friendly group of people. I was just sorry not to be able to stay to see the party get into full swing!
