Altrincham Interfaith Group

bout 170 people attended the event in the Hall of Altrincham Grammar School for Boys on February 6. After a welcome to all by the AIG chairman, Gordon Levy, GMP's Detective Inspector Ben Ewart, of Trafford Division, spoke about the excellent interfaith relations in Trafford. After prayers by Muslim and Hindu children, and representatives of the Jewish and Christian communities, everyone enjoyed delicious home-cooked food. There were meat and vegetarian curries prepared and served by the Muslim and Hindu community, supplemented by samosas from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association, and Kosher alternatives made by the Jewish members. Then it was time to hear the main speaker, Baroness Susan Williams, who gave a personal and heart-warming talk about the work that she did in the community and government, and her interest in interfaith activities.
