Dean Russell visited the Watford Interfaith Association’s (WIFA) Peace Garden at Cassiobury Park to meet the volunteers. The Peace Garden is a small haven of calm on the edge of the park which is available for anyone and everyone to enjoy peace and quiet in natural surroundings.
The idea is that the faith communities contribute ideas for the garden based on their faith traditions. WIFA is a multi-religious organisation, involving believers of the following faiths: Baha’i; Buddhism; Christianity; Hinduism; Islam; Judaism; Sikhism and Zoroastrianism. All others of any faith or none are welcome to participate.
WIFA is based upon respect for religious differences as well as the conviction that religious persons and groups can work together with great value on shared commitments for their community.
The group meet every Wednesday morning and most Sunday afternoons to create and maintain the garden. All are welcome, and for more information please ring Jeff on 07973 316689.
Following his visit Dean said “I would encourage all local residents to visit this fantastic place! It is a place for all to enjoy, all year round.”
