Local businesses and organisations recently attended Wakefield’s Swafia Mosque Open Day. Local partners from WDH, NHS, West Yorkshire Police and West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue joined together at the event to provide local people with information about the local services available to them.
Chris Croxall, WDH’s Tenant Involvement Officer, said: “It was a pleasure to be at the Mosque Open Day and see so many residents enjoy themselves on the various fun activities. We promoted our services and local initiatives and are pleased to be part of a day that brought the community together.”
Chris spoke to local residents about some of the events and services that WDH provides for the local community, as well as helping them to access digital services including the housing association’s mobile App. Pervez Khaliq, WDH Project Officer, also talked to residents about improvement works in Lupset and future works coming up in the local area.
The Swafia Mosque holds an open day annually and it is an opportunity for the local community to come together and learn more about the different activities and services available at the mosque.
The event was a great success and Mr Hussain, Chairman at the Swafia Mosque, said: “It was a fantastic day. I want to pass on my thanks to Chris and Pervez for attending on behalf of WDH and all the other partners. They provided so much useful information for people, having Pervez there to translate for people really made it more accessible.”
