Officers from Spinney Hill Park police station swapped their uniforms for sports kits on Tuesday night (June 16) in support of a Multi-Faith Football Match in Highfields.

The match, which was organised by the St Philip’s Centre, brought together local community religious leaders, police officers and a visiting multi-faith group from Sweden with the aim of promoting stronger links between different faiths and agencies in the area.

It took place in Spinney Hill Park on East Park Road and builds on the tradition of an annual cricket match which is held between local Imams and the Clergy.
