Warrington Ethnic Women Group celebrate first ever Eid party


WARRINGTON Ethnic Women Group recently celebrated their first ever Eid party, since its launch early this year at Bewsey Park.

The party was organised by the group and involved women and children only. Everyone brought a food dish to share, and everyone enjoyed different cooking styles from all backgrounds. Children enjoyed the aprk and played many outdoor games. After completing a month of Ramadan (Fasting Month), Muslims worldwide celebrate Eid.

The chair of the group Shireen Saeed, said, “I am so pleased to see so many women and children attended today and had a lot of fun. We have a vision for this group, and I am excited to see it expanding rapidly. Every day many new members join the group from all walks of life. We have Pakistani, Kurdish, Arabic, Indian, Turkish, Greek, Polish, Ukrainian, Bangladeshi, Syrian, Philippines, African, and many more countries’ heritage.”

“This is an excellent example of community cohesion as we celebrate diversity. This kind of group is essential to bringing everyone together and helping each other. Group is planning many more events to include the broader community. This group is becoming the voice of ethnic women in Warrington while playing its part in women’s empowerment and integration.

Shireen added: “Wolfie, from Warrington Wolves, made a surprise visit to the party. Children were amazed to see him, and everyone took pictures with the Wolfie. This was probably the first Eid Party Wolfie attended. We thank Warrington Wolves for sending Wolfie to attend our party”.
