Mela meeting - a meeting of minds
We were VERY pleased to meet with Ajay Chhabra of London's renowned Nutkhut to talk about Mela and the partnership of Mela organisations and events in the UK <<<< check the video!!
The meeting, brought about by our MEP Julie Ward and attended by Eden District Council Leader Kevin Beaty was the first step in what we hope will be a really fruitful partnership.
Julie had first thought of Mela in Cumbria when the Cumbria floods brought a fantastic response from the Muslim community that saw people come to give their time to travel to Cumbria to help with the clean up and show caring and love and compassion. She suggested that Ajay get in touch with us to see if we would be interested in talking about how we could work together - and of course we said yes!
Kevin is always supportive of looking at how we can bring new initiatives to Cumbria that might help us to further our mutual objectives of making Eden an even more fantastic place to live in and to visit. We very much appreciate that he's prepared to give his time to join in with discussions like this.
And Ajay is a dude. (Kevin and Julie also!).
So...... SO....! let's see... we are on it....
