Thank you to Claire Mulcock, the Chairperson of the Deans Avenue Precinct Society Inc. who approached the Mosque management to make connections as neighbours.

During the meeting two decisions were made.
- A BBQ for the Deans Avenue neighbourhood was held at Masjeed An Nur hosted by the Deans Avenue Precinct on 25th August
- Neighbours coffee morning on every first Wednesday of each month was agreed upon. Which was later changed to every trimester.
