Beacon Mosque Awards – Almost there!


On Saturday the 8th of September Palmers Green Mosque attended the Beacon Mosque
Awards 2018 in the Hilton Paddington.
We were kindly nominated and shortlisted for the Best Green Initiative.
This category will be seeking to award a Mosque that has developed and sustained a green initiative from their Mosque, either through an educational initiative or a physical adaptation to reduce its carbon footprint, i.e. solar panels, rainwater harvesting. The judges were impressed with our cycle club and olive tree plantations and our use of solar panels.

While we didn’t win this year, we’ve learned a lot on how to move forward and become worthy of the Beacon Mosque title.

The British Beacon Mosque Awards were organised by Faith Associates who deliver Mosque Training and have recently launched the Beacon Mosque Standard Initiative, providing Mosque standards to meet in terms of governance, to encourage best practice amongst mosques.
