It had been a long time since friends community came had a social gathering. The LHMC team decided to put together a last-minute Eid party open for the entire Muslim community of New Zealand. The event was free for all with bring a plate. It proved to be an instant hit with adults and children alike. A much-needed socialising opportunity. We set up a free Henna and face paint stalls. The children had the added benefit of going to Avalon park. Everyone brought food and different ethnic delights. The event started with a Welcome and on-the-spot talent showed. Children were given an opportunity to come to the mic and present any talent of their choice to earn a bar of chocolate. All the children who took part chose to recite qur’anic verse. People enjoyed thoroughly and the event received a lot of positive feedback and encouragement. LHMC, would strive to continue to provide the Muslim Community of Hutt Valley with similar opportunities to get together and hope to see the extended community of Hutt Valley taking part in these events in the future.
