An annual peace conference held by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association (AMA) of Slough will be taking place on Saturday.

The ninth consecutive conference, taking place at the Langley Academy, will be attended by a number of councillors, members of voluntary groups and religious organisations, including the Mayor of Slough, Cllr Chrissy Small and Fiona Mactaggart MP.

The theme for this year's conference is 'Freedom of Speech and its Limitations'.

Atiq Bhatti. vice-president of AMA Slough, said: "One of the beauties of living in Slough is being a part of its diversity, as it has a multitude of cultural and religious variety, all of which coexist alongside one another.

"In a unique environment such as this, occasionally it is important to share this splendid diversity with each other and remind ourselves of the things that we have in common."

The free event aims to promote better understanding between faith and community groups in order to develop a more harmonious society.

Doors open 3.30pm for a 4pm start, contact 07812 070810 to confirm attendance.
