RAMADAN HOLY MONTH: Next week sees the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan and I would like to wish all members of the Muslim community in Wakefield a peaceful Ramadan. It will be hard this year as we observe a total fast from sunrise to sunset and its long days this year, but patience is the main thing in Ramadan so I am sure we will cope. Ramadan is a time for self reflection, extra prayers, showing greater tolerance and thats why its a special month to Muslims all over the world.

YOUNG AT HEART GROUP: For the over 55s meet every Thursday from 1.30pm to 3.30pm at the community centre. On August 4 the speaker will be from Thorneycroft Befriending.

SNOOKER CHALLENGE: In the rematch Danni Aslam is currently leading by one frame, we are due to finish the match off Sunday this week, so good luck to us both. Will put in the result of the match next week.

TRIVIA QUIZ: This week’s trivia question is “What year was the Humber Bridge built?” Text or e-mail me if you know the answer.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Just as despair can come to one only from other human beings, hope, too, can be given to one only by other human beings.
