Cllr. Andy Stranack meet up with Cllr. Neil Garratt (Conservative GLA candidate for Croydon/Sutton) and Shuaib Yusaf from Croydon Mosque this afternoon. In a wide ranging discussion, covering the large amount of community and education work that gets undertaken at the Islamic Centre, to topics of specific concern to the Muslim community such as burial space and education and more general community concerns around litter, parking and crime. It was was a very informative and constructive meeting.
Cllr. Andy Stranack said
"It was a real pleasure to meet with Shuaib and Neil and learn more about the work undertaken by the Muslim community and the amazing voluntary work that Shuaid personally undertakes. We agreed to meet again in four to six weeks time where I hope we can meet friends from the South Norwood Mosque."
