NIFF members were very privileged to have a visit from Cheryl Armatrading of the AAA Foundation, dedicated to working with young people to counteract knife crime, and Omid Djalili, the well-known British-Iranian comic, actor and author. Omid is a practising Bahai, and he talked about what makes vibrant communities, from a Bahai perspective. It was a very stimulating and thought-provoking meeting.
