Picnic to celebrate diversity.

FOOD and friendship are on the menu at an inter-faith picnic this weekend.

The annual event, organised by Huddersfield Interfaith Council (HIC), aims to allow people of different faiths to learn about their customs and beliefs.

It will be at the Quaker Meeting House Peace Garden on Church Street in Paddock on Sunday from 12.30pm to 3pm.

Members will bring vegetarian food from their own culture and tradition.

A range of activates including co-operative games and music will entertain people of all ages.

HIC chairman Steve Bedford said: "Sharing food with each other is a great way of celebrating diversity and promoting cohesion within our communities.

"The picnic is part of the HIC's commitment to encouraging people from different faiths to meet in friendship, to work together and challenge discrimination.

"We're very grateful to the Quakers for hosting this event again in their meeting house and gardens." HIC includes people from at least seven different faiths: Bahai; Buddhist; Christian; Hindu; Jewish; Muslim; Quaker and Sikh.

Those of any faith, or no faith, are welcome.
