MAY 3rd 2019: Interfaith Tree Planting

Faiths Forum London has organised an interfaith tree planting event  with Finsbury Park Trust on Friday 3rd May at 2.30 pm at Finsbury Park.

The trees – a symbol of peace and hope will be planted jointly by the Speaker of Hackney Councillor Clare Potter, Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Haringey Councillors Gina Adamou and Sheila Peacock and the Mayor or Deputy Mayor of Islington. They will be joined by local community faith leaders from the mosques, churches and Synagogue and community Organisations.

Although this event has been arranged at very short notice because of Ramadan starting on Sunday 5th May, “on behalf of Finsbury Park Trust we are delighted to have been asked to host it. In light of recent tragic events leading to shootings and loss of innocent lives at a Jewish Synagogue in San Diego USA, the massacres at Churches on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka and the killings in a mosque in Christchurch New Zealand, local community faith leaders will plant 5 cherry trees to remember the victims of these horrible carnage as a symbol of peace, hope and unity. One of the trees will also be dedicated to the victims of knife crime incidents in London.”

Please join us on Friday 3rd May at 2.30 pm at Finsbury Park near the Manor House gate entrance.
