Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd has wished Greater Manchester’s 230,000 Muslims a happy Eid. Eid is the celebration that marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.
Tony sent a special message to mosques across the region to mark the celebrations.
The message reads:
I would like to take the opportunity on this auspicious occasion to wish all the Muslim communities across Greater Manchester ‘Eid Mubarak’
I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating and enjoying some delicious food after what will have been a difficult month of fasting during Ramadan especially during the hot weather and long summer days.
Community safety is my top policing and crime priority and that of Greater Manchester Police, our local Councils, and – most importantly of all – the people of Greater Manchester. My vision is for all of us in Greater Manchester to work together to build the safest communities in Britain, therefore keeping in contact with communities is very important to me especially at times of celebration.
I hope you all have a great few days celebrating and well done again for the past 30 days of fasting….. Eid Mubarak!
Police and Crime Commissioner
