Tunbridge Wells mosque calls for help to expand

Masjid Al-Noor, the only mosque in Tunbridge Wells, has launched an appeal for public donations to help fund plans to double in size.

They are aiming to raise £300,000 to extend and improve the building’s facilities, with construction planned to start next year.

Around 200 people attend the mosque and floor space is running low.

Suruk Miah, Chairman of the Tunbridge Wells Islamic and Cultural Association, said the main purpose of the expansion is “not for more people to come but to have more space for people already coming, especially women and children. We have 50 children that attend, it gets very full so we need to give them a separate room”.

When asked about the mosque’s relationship with the community he said: “Tunbridge Wells has always been very accepting. It is a very nice area. I have always had very friendly neighbours.”

Last week, 400 people attended an Iftar Party to mark the end of the Ramadan fast, at the mosque including the Mayor David Neve and Greg Clark MP. For more details, visit www.tunbridgewellsmosque.com
