Muslims from across the borough celebrated Eid al-Adha yesterday, with a huge festival in Goodmayes Park.

After prayers at 10am, families enjoyed socialising, fairground rides and lots of different food and drinks.

1Eid arranged the event in Green Lane, Goodmayes, and organiser Momtahena Jaigirdar told the Recorder the day was a “great success”.

“It went really well, we had great feedback from all the community that attended,” she said.

This was the sixth year 1Eid have organised the celebration in Goodmayes Park, but Momtahena said they were still fundraising for next year’s party.

“We are a community funded organisation, so we hold events and bake sales to raise money to pay to hold this celebration at the park.”
