The Shropshire Islamic Foundation held and open Mosque day on 18th February and Sharon and Jane from the Patient Services Team went along to find out more about Islam and the local community. It was a very informal and welcoming event and those that attended were able to watch the local community attend prayers.
Following prayers we were invited to look around the Mosque, which has recently been developed, including the newly constructed Bungalow which will be used by the Shropshire & Telford United Women's Association who are linked to the Shropshire Islamic Foundation.
There was a good opportunity to speak to various members of the community and to read about the different aspects of Islam.
