Happy Vaisakhi everyone!
On this auspicious day as we commemorate the inauguration of the Khalsa Panth Sajana 1699, Sikh Council UK very pleased to confirm that London Mayor Sadiq Khan having met his electoral commitment to bring the Annual Vaisakhi Event back to Trafalgar Square in the heart of the city has also agreed for the format to be within the Sikhi ethos. For the event of 29th April 2017, we very much welcome this.
Sikh Council UK fully acknowledge and appreciate the team effort of the steering group and City Hall towards bringing about a resolution through constructive dialogue for what will shape up to be a fantastic programme.
We commend the stirling role the steering group including; Lovepreet Singh Samra, Manraj Singh have played in bringing about positive outcomes.
We shall endeavour to offer continued support to the organising team to ensure that the event is a huge success as it sets the template for other public events commemorating the inauguration of the Khalsa Panth.
