After the picnic, some people got in touch.
“Thank you very much everyone for organising the picnic. We really enjoyed it and appreciated your support.”
“Thank you so much to everyone for assisting with the picnic today. It was lovely to see some new faces. It was a lovely afternoon.”
“A lovely day in the fresh air, I think I will sleep tonight. Thank you for your friendship. It was good to see people in the flesh so to speak”
“A really good day! Thanks to everyone. It was a really good show case for togetherness, peace with each other and faith in goodness.”
“Thanks to everyone for organising a very enjoyable and successful day.”
“It was good on Saturday.”
“It was amazing on Saturday how strangers young and old (and old people with sticks joining in with the games – they were competitive) everyone just came together and enjoyed each other's company in the park, there was no awkwardness, no barriers, just really happy people!”
“I can't stop telling people what a great time I had on Saturday, when is the next one?”
We hope to have another Interfaith Picnic next year in another part of Fife, to allow others to join in.
Spurned on by everyone's enthusiasm for more social gatherings open to all beyond our group and membership, we are already planning our next event. Thank you for the opportunity which your funding gave us to allow us to test the waters on how popular an event would be for a diverse, group of people from different faiths to want to come together.
