Vale AM Jane Hutt visited the Mosque in Barry with Councillor Pam Drake to bring a message of friendship and support to the Muslim community in the Vale of Glamorgan.
After Jane spoke to the members of the Mosque saying how proud she was to represent them in the Welsh Assembly, there was a full and open discussion about needs, experiences and understanding about the message of peace the Islamic faith brings.
It was agreed that education was vital to develop mutual understanding and to overcome misunderstandings, ignorance and prejudice.
Jane Hutt said,
“It was a great privilege to visit the Mosque and to meet the members who live in the Vale of Glamorgan with their families providing a major contribution to our businesses and the community.”
