A Weekend With Communities

Strange weekend, Royal Wedding on Friday, I didn't have an invite and Vaisakhi on Sunday with campaigning and a visit to my own church, Wycliffe, in between.

We are continuing door knocking and are still meeting people who want to vote Labour. It is great to see voters decide that they want a Council that really looks after its residents and that listens to its residents concerns.

Sunday started off with a visit to Wycliffe's early service at 9 O'Clock in the morning. It is a traditional service rather than the normal Wycliffe service. After the service I whipped across Cumberland Road to the Gudwara to take part in the Sikh Community's Vaisakhi celebrations. This is usually a colourful and interesting event. The procession goes up the Wokingham Road, along Church Road, Pitts Lane and back down the A4 to Cumberland Road.

The rest of the day was spent talking to residents in the Ward. This is something I really enjoy, I love listening to residents concerns and trying to help them get the services they need. The campaign continues and am looking forward to Thursday.

So that you can see the pictures I took of the event I have put a link to my Flickr feed of the day.
