Dear friends of Truby’s Garden Tea Room

I am delighted to invite you to the Great Get Together Iftaar on Sunday, 19 May, 7 PM at Campbell Park Pavilion.

As you will see from the invitation and the programme (click on images below to enlarge) that we are planning an amazing multi faith enlightenment programme with many activities to build a stronger and cohesive community in Milton Keynes.

Please do circulate it within your circle of family, friends and colleagues.  Everyone is welcome and this time there are many interesting activities for the children (and adults should they want to join in!) so please make The Great Get Together Iftaar on 19 May a BIG success for Milton Keynes. 

We would ask any non-Muslims attending to please bring salads, vegetarian dishes or desserts for the bring and share.

I very much hope you will be able to join us.
