Cllr David Royle

The Mayor of Medway

Dialogue Society organises annual dialogue dinners and meetings with people from a wide variety of ethnic traditions. Ramadan is a month when the relationships within and outside the community are strengthened by fasting and breaking the fast.

To reinforce the friendship, and dialog between diverse communities, we gather in the intercultural dinners during Ramadan with people from all walks of life of varied communities and faith groups to emphasize on the values such as mutual understanding, deep respect, love, and peace.

The evening began with a short welcome speech followed by a presentation of Dialogue Society. When it was time to break the fast, guests were listened to the Ezan (call to prayer) and served with a traditional Turkish Iftar dinner. And then The Mayor of Medway, Cllr David Royle made a speech about community cohesion.

The event has ended with the comments from the guests and the closing speech.
