On 22 February 2017, SPMA were invited to attend the Annual Awards Ceremony which took place in Holyrood Secondary where we were presented with an Award. Congratulations to Sergeant Dario D’Andrea and Inspector Craig Rankine for their ongoing work with the PSYV.
On Sunday 5 February 2017, UK wide saw the initiative entitled Visit My Mosque where over 150 mosques partook in holding open days and welcoming the non Muslim community to attend their local mosque to learn more about Islam. This was an opportunity to have dialogue about topical issues and learn more about Muslims. SPMA were invited to attend and gladly did so with Police Scotland. CI Alistair Muir and his team ran this initiative in conjunction with Cumbernauld Mosque to make it a bigger and better event for families.
We are proud to announce our Iftaar dinner event 2017 where we will have a night of short talks and poetry from inter faith groups and we will send prayers to those affected after the recent tragic events in the UK and violence worldwide.
This event is held in Ramadhan as Muslims are fasting during this month and open fast at sunset daily. It allows various communities and faith groups to attend and enjoy the experience of opening a fast with our Muslim brothers and sisters, whilst communities will be united and learning from one another.
