Looking forward to excellent speakers and crunchy discussion/info-sharing at Wednesday’s meeting. I’ve heard back from many LBFN folk – if you’d like to join us and haven’t been in touch, please let me know asap and I will send details.
LOCOG contacted LBFN late last year and we’re delighted that Sangita Patel, Community Relations Manager, will be with us with the latest London 2012 news, along with Chloe Smith, Lead Communications and Engagement Manager at Transport for London. Together we’ll look at how to mitigate expected difficulties and how to bring the benefits of the Games to all our communities, particularly the marginalised and vulnerable.
With the Mayoral & London Assembly elections coming up on 3rd May, David Braniff-Herbert from Hope Not Hate and Peter Adams from Luton Council of Faiths will share their expertise on what’s to be expected from the far right. Find some hustings guidance here.
It is the first time we’ve linked up with Faiths Forum for London – it’s been a pleasure working with Phil Rosenberg, Director, and Alex Goldberg, Co-Chair, and attending the pre-meeting with Hope Not Hate.
My only regret is that our meeting clashes with Westminster Cathedral Interfaith Group’s Meeting God in Friend and Stranger, which takes place on the third Wednesday of each month – more information from John Woodhouse.
