Teeyan Exhibition: a morning of dance and colour!

I was delighted when a local resident invited me to the opening of the Teeyan exhibition at the Indian Community Centre.  Teeyan in a traditional Punjabi festival for women.  I was also joined by Cllr Chris Maskell, Mayor Marian Livingston & our parliamentary candidate Victoria Groulef.

The exhibition runs at the Indian Community Centre until 18 June:
