Perhimpunan Keluarga 2009 & New Committee Members Line Up

Perhimpunan Keluarga 2009 aka camping at Ashworth Valley Scout Camp went very well over the weekend. The camping attracted participants from various races, Muslims and non-Muslims. Once again the Malay community in the UK has shown that they do not just mixed around with Malays only. Mixing around with Malays only will prevent personal development and is likened to the Malay proverb "Seperti katak di bawah tempurung" (like a frog under the coconut shell). 

Participants enjoyed the weekend with various indoor and outdoor activities and participants even lit their own campfire. Sarah Hamidi from PISANG (Professional Islamic Support and Nurture Group) launched the "Link Scheme: From Al-Azhar to the World", a scheme to help Muslims in the UK learn more about their religion. Sarah can be contacted via email sarah @ pisang.org.uk.

PISANG also had a session on the "Introduction to PISANG", explaining the services offered by the organisation. At the request of participants, jinn-screening sessions were also held after the talk.

Food have been very delicious with participants going for a second round at every meal. Participants also could not resist the temptations of various delicious food on sale at the Melayu UK summer fete, organised on the Sunday.

The Perhimpunan Keluarga was also an event that mark the change of leadership of Melayu UK. The new line up of committee members are as follows:
