COWDENBEATH MSP Annabelle Ewing is urging people to consider how they could promote greater understanding of faiths in their communities.

Ms Ewing MSP met with representatives of the Fife InterFaith Group and discussed the work that they do and was impressed with what she heard.

The Group established a Peace Garden in Kirkcaldy's Beveridge Park and the words on the plaque there sums up their hopes: 'This peace garden was created by members of Fife InterFaith Group as a living symbol of our hope for peace among all men and women and as our testament to our deep commitment to greater harmony, compassion and understanding among the people of faith in Fife.'

The Cowdenbeath MSP met secretary Frank Bowness and chairman Colm Wilson to find out more about the Group.

Speaking on Wednesday Ms Ewing said: “I had a very good meeting with Colm Wilson and Frank Bowness, from the Fife InterFaith Group, and it was really interesting to hear about the work that they do including their regular meetings and events.

“In our troubled world, I really commend the efforts of Fife InterFaith Group to promote good inter-faith relations in our communities and to generate a greater understanding among faiths.

“I would encourage everyone who is interested in the work they do to find out more and consider getting involved. More information and contact details can be found on their website at www.fifeinterfaithgroup.org.uk or they can also be found on Facebook.”
