Faithful followers joined together to take part in an interfaith walk.

More than 100 worshippers turned out on Sunday for the

eighth annual Redbridge Faith Forum Multi-faith Walk of Peace, to discuss what everyone can do to make the world a more peaceful place.

The event was a celebration of the borough’s religious diversity, said Jacquie Grieve, the forum’s chairwoman.

“It was a wonderful day, with some new faces. If everybody went home and spread the message of the day, the message will go far.”

Walkers began at the Buddhist Vihara, Balfour Road, Ilford, where they lit candles with the Mayor of Redbridge, Cllr Gurdial Bhamra.

The final stop was the Karamsar Gurdwara, High Road. Walkers enjoyed langar and a presentation by young people about spreading peace and tolerance.
