The Gants Hill branch of the Women’s Interfaith Network (WIN) got together at Indian restaurant Kanchans, Perth Road, Gants Hill, yesterday afternoon.

Police officers gave a talk about terrorism before members of the group, which was set up in the wake of 9/11, broke bread and discussed issues raised.

“Once you start understanding each other, you start respecting each other.”
