Free family quiz afternoon this Interfaith Week

This year to mark Interfaith Week, Merton Council, in partnership with the borough’s Faith and Belief Forum, is holding a free quiz afternoon Saturday 19 November.

Layout 1Residents are invited to the event at Poplar School, Merton Park, London, SW19 3JZ from 4.00pm to 6.00 pm.

Colliers Wood library will also be hosting The Lights that bind us interfaith event on Thursday 17 November from 4.00 pm to 7.00 pm at their temporary site.

Interfaith Week is held in the third week of November to highlight the good work of local faith groups and to celebrate diversity in communities.

Merton’s Cabinet Member for Community Safety, Engagement and Equalities, Councillor Edith Macauley, said: “Interfaith Week is time for us to come together to celebrate the positive things that living in a diverse community brings.  The late Reverend Dr Andrew Wakefield was involved in planning the quiz afternoon and the event will now become a tribute to him and continue his commitment to bring people of different faiths and no faiths together, to socialise and learn more about each other.”
