Mayor John Biggs Eid Message

I would like to extend my best wishes to all those performing Hajj this year and to Muslims in Tower Hamlets and around the country who are celebrating Eid-ul-Adha.
On Eid-ul-Adha we reflect on the values of sacrifice, trust and forgiveness.
On this day Muslims from all over the world join their neighbours and friends at mosques, community centres, parks and homes to pray and recommit to helping each other. Many will also distribute food and money to those in need.
We think about these common values of peace and harmony in our community.
On this very important day of celebration, I wish you all a very happy and peaceful Eid.

Eid Mubarak

John Biggs
Executive Mayor of Tower Hamlets
