New Year’s Day clean-up

YOUNG Muslims took to the streets of Farnham with brooms and bin bags in hand on New Year’s Day for a community litter-pick.

After their morning prayer on Sunday, January 1, members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) based at Islamabad in Tilford gathered at Gostrey Meadow to help clean the town’s streets after the new year festivities.
