Eid Milad-un-Nabi

This evening I have attended Radcliffe Civic Hall for the celebration of Eid Milad-un-Nabi the celebration of the birthday of the Prophet Mohammad which is one of the main religious festivals in the year for Muslims. The evening was organised by ADAB who do an excellent job in helping the Asian Community in Bury.
On Wednesday I attended a meeting of Bury Council when it was announced that Councillor Wayne Campbell who is presently Leader of the Opposition is to resign his seat after 25 years service because he has taken up a new job with Six Town Housing (this is the organsiation that manages and maintains local authority housing in Bury). To serve the Community for a quarter of a century is a great achievement ~regardless of Party~ and I am sure he will miss the cut and thrust of the Council Chamber.
On Thursday evening I was over in Bolton at the Last Drop Hotel where I attended a fund raising dinner in aid of Bolton Conservatives where the guest speaker was William Hague M.P.
I even won a prize in their raffle a box of House of Commons mint chocolates and a bottle of Cava!
