👑 As Chair, I invite you to share your views on Queen Elizabeth, her Platinum Jubilee, her role as monarch, her openness about her faith, her legacy and the future of the Royal Family. 
Did you notice “Have Faith” as part of Act 4: Celebration in which  Jeni Cairns’ collaboration showed the Queen’s steadfast commitment to religious diversity. Hundreds of children from nine primary schools across Greater London  collaborated to build and parade paper and withy butterflies, with iconography representing the nine principle faith groups. The centerpiece was designed by Peterborough-based artist Jeni Cairns and features a willow and steel structure of open hands, which offers up flowers and butterflies to depict the nine interfaith religions.
David, Chair NIFL

Peace Tree Dedication Ceremony
Location: Chapelfield Gardens

See map )
The Norwich Peace Camp and Peace Cycle invite you to the dedication ceremony for the newly planted Norwich Peace Tree in Chapelfield Gardens.
An informal picnic and gathering will start from 3pm, with the Lord Mayor kicking off the plaque unveiling and speeches from 3:15pm. Readings and reflections are welcomed after, should anyone wish to share. Please bring your own food and drinks.
The event will be on the Chapelfield Road side of the park between the children’s play area and the pedestrian underpass (see map).
The Norwich Peace Tree is to commemorate that Norwich has a Mayor for peace. It has been donated by the community of Norwich Peace Camp in an initiative organised by the late Shan Barclay.
With conflict in the world at this time, we hope you will join us to maintain the vision that peace is achievable and it starts with community.

All members are invited to attend a public celebration of the Rights of the River at Wensum Park in Norwich on Saturday 30th April, from 12 -4 pm. 

An alliance of environmental and community groups are organising a public celebration of the Rights of the River at Wensum Park. See  https://www.rightsofrivers.org/  for a declaration, which is open for signing, and poster attached for event details. Scroll quickly through towards the end for a list of the Rights. 

There will be catering on site, music, art and poetry. Famous local story teller Hugh Lupton http://hughlupton.co.uk/ will make a Declaration of the Rights of the River https://www.rightsofrivers.org/ 

Other highlights include writer Robert MacFarlane, naturalist Nick Acheson, artist Tor Falcon, Dr Charlie Gardner, Jonah Tosney from Norfolk Rivers Trusts and Norfolk Wildlife Trust, Norfolk Campaign against Climate Change, Stop the Wensum Link, XR, so far.

Why NIFL?

It is a topic which all faith groups could support in different ways. It would be a good opportunity for us to see and meet each other in person. I have bought a Gazebo as a focus for a NIFL meeting point.

We have been invited as a group by Lesley Grahame, Green Party Councillor, Thorpe Hamlet Ward, Norwich.
