Hopes for Herefordshire's first mosque

The Muslim community of Herefordshire is raising funds to build a mosque.

Currently the Kindle Centre in Hereford is rented for prayer as there are no mosques or community centres in the county.

The community has so far raised about £40,000 through weekly donations at Friday prayer and from outside help.

Zac Pandur, chairman of the Herefordshire Muslim Society, said the mosque would welcome people from across the county.

He said: "When we have our own place, it's easier then to welcome the other Herefordians... so we're not some kind of weird sect or anything, we're actually quite normal people," he said.

The society is aiming to register as a charity and to find a suitable location in the centre of Hereford.
