Kind words from Schools that have visited us:
12/11/12 - Kingshott School (44 Children)
We have just returned from a thoroughly informative and enjoyable visit, hosted by Gurdeep Singh. We try to come to the Gurdwara at least once a year as, not only does it help the children gain a clearer understanding of Sikhism as a faith, but it also gives the children a clearer understanding of the community that they live in. The food was a big hit and the children thoroughly agree with the concept of no visitor leaving with an empty tummy! Thank you and well done!
