To mark the end of Ramadan Kent Equality Cohesion Council working in partnership Gravesham Borough Council and the Gravesham & Dartford Muslim Association, is planning a community celebration to mark the Festival of Eid. Eid is the festival of breaking the feast, marking the end of Ramadan.

The celebration will focus on bringing the communities of Gravesham together and will include activities for families and the sharing of free food and soft drinks.

Gurvinder Sandher, the CEO of Kent Equality Cohesion Council added: “I am proud to be involved in organising a number of events in the borough. All of these events at their core are about providing opportunities for communities to come together and celebrate all that unites us as citizens of the borough and the country. The Eid celebrations are no exception and in light of the recent terrorist atrocities I think it is more important than ever for all communities to stand together and be united and say that these attacks will not affect our way of life and the positive community relations that exist in Gravesham. We have a good fun day planned and there will be donations of free food and drink for all those who attend regardless of faith, so I would urge as many people as possible to come and join us on Community Square on July 1.”
