On Saturday, 20th October, I was delighted to attend the 21st Annual Diwali Lights Celebration, having been invited by the Hindu Community of Northampton, with whom I have excellent and longstanding relations.
The Hindu Festival of Lights is a favourite in my annual events, and I congratulate Northampton's Indian Hindu Welfare Organisation (IHWO) – including Neelam Aggarwal-Singh with whom I am pictured – for the efforts and organisation which goes into the event to make it such a great success.
Many hundreds of people lined the streets of Northampton to watch the parade, back on Northampton’s town centre streets.
I have always sought to build and maintain strong relationships across our wide and diverse community in Northampton. The Festival of Lights parade in Northampton gets bigger every year and long may it continue!
