The Muslim community in Craven Arms began in the 1980's when job opportunities drew workers in to the area.
Initially the five daily prayers were offered in the living room of rented accommodation with one member of the community undertaking the Imam (Priest) role in leading the prayers.
As the community grew in the early 2000's a house was bought but the Imam role was still undertaken by members of the community. In 2005 an Imam was employed to lead the prayers and teach the children the basics of Islam.
He left for newer horizons in 2011 and the current Imam, Sohayb Peerbhai, was employed.
