New shelter for Muslim community at Western Cemetery
A new shelter has been installed in the Muslim burial area at Western Cemetery.

The £20,000 shelter, which will provide protection from bad weather for visitors to the cemetery wanting to pray or waiting for burial services to commence, has been funded by generous donations from local mosques, business and community leaders and delivered in partnership with Cardiff Council, led by Councillors Dilwar Ali and Abdul Sattar.

"I'd like to thank everyone who has donated for their generosity, and all involved in making this happen, for the time and effort they have put into the project."
