Michael Ellis, MP for Northampton North, came to see the work in progress on Saturday where women, men and youth aged 16 years and over helped cut back overgrowth, paint the outside fence and clear out the shell of the building for the Gurdwara. Mr Ellis remarked that ‘it was a real pleasure today to visit the site of the new Sikh Gurdwara in Northampton. A big community turnout!’
The local leader of the Sikh faith, Amarjit, commented that it was a great day indeed!
Police Community Engagement Officer DC Rachel Packman visited the project and remarked: “It was a good turnout of about 80 people. The cooperation between these two faith groups reflects the wider picture in Northampton where the majority of all faith and community groups respect each other’s views and try and help each other where possible.”
