Merton’s Religious and Community Leaders stand in solidarity

Leaders of the religious and community groups in Merton met yesterday to reaffirm their solidarity, in the wake of last week’s bomb attack on the capital.

Representatives from the community and the police met Mayor Councillor Judy Saunders and Council Leader Andrew Judge, and gathered to sign the Book of Condolences.

They jointly stated, “We reaffirm the value we place on the richness and diversity of faith, culture and ethnicity in Merton, and we call on everyone to continue to respect the rights of all others to live in peace and safety.”
