Earlier today I attended the Vaisakhi -- New Year -- celebrations being hosted by Reading and Wokingham Sikhs. It was good to have the sun shining this year -- last year it was cold, wet and windy.
I particularly enjoyed the sword/stake fighting demonstrations, although at one point a stick did come a little close for comfort!
As always there was plenty of food, but unfortunately I had breakfast before coming out and so was full. Note to self, next year skip breakfast.
I walked with the procession up the Wokingham Road as far as Palmer Park and chatted to people from the local community. All in all a pleasant morning and a welcome a break from campaigning for the local elections.
