Wednesday 21st September was the 2016 United Nations World Peace Day and was celebrated by Redbridge Faith Forum organising a very enjoyable social event for people of all faiths and none to come together to share a delicious three course vegetarian meal.
Redbridge Faith Forum would like to thank the management committee and members of the Karamsar Centre for their generous hospitality in providing a wonderful meal in the lovely surroundings of the Banqueting Suite in what was once the Ilford County Courthouse in Buckingham Road in Ilford.
Redbridge Faith Forum was delighted that The Mayor of Redbridge, Councillor Gurdial Bhamra attended the event and spoke personally to those attending as well as making an inspirational address.
