Free Coffee! Free Cake! Free Koran! Breaking down barriers

Discussing Islam can be found at  @islam_discuss on Twitter. The group holds fortnightly meetings at  to educate people and discuss the religion of Islam. There is free cake, coffee and Koran at the meetings….

Rafay, the organiser, writes,

“We live in a world with many different religions and cultures. Islam is one of the largest religions in the world. In England 1 in 20 are Muslims and this regular event is being held so that anyone can come and ask questions to learn about Islam in a chilled out environment.

No questions are barred (about Islam and Muslims) so come and learn about Muslims and get answers to the questions that you’ve perhaps never been able to get access to.

The aim is to try and give you the spectrum of the Islamic view on issues and also what the general majority feel is the most appropriate way.

In addition, the group hope to deliver a comprehensive introductory course to Islam over a period of a few sessions.


I’d really love to see anyone who fancies a coffee and wants to discuss Islam with me, listen to some live Quran recitation, and hopefully make friends with others too!

I’d love to hear your views on recent events and how they impact on you and also whether knowing about Islam could be useful in your workplace.

It happens every fortnight on a Thursday in the gallery in Matthews Yard, 1 Surrey Street, Croydon near the Surrey Street Market.”

The next sessions are is on 28th September & then 12th October 2017.

Have your say! MOPAC consultation on accessing Met Police services

MOPAC CONSULTATION on accessing Met Police services

Including public meeting…

Please help spread the word!

The Met Police have had to find £600m of savings and must save a further £400m by 2020.

The Mayor, Sadiq Khan, has published draft plans to close costly and underused police front counters in London and provide better ways to contact the Met online. 

Doing this would help to meet growing public demand to be able to access Met Police services from smartphones, tablets and computers, whilst saving £10mill that could be spent instead on frontline policing.

The Metropolitan Police Service is holding public consultation sessions in every London Borough so that local people can learn about the changes described in this document and can give their views.

The session in Croydon will be held on:
