Message from the Leader of Dudley Council to the Hindu, Sikh and Jain community
It gives me great pleasure to offer the Hindu, Sikh and Jain communities my warmest greetings for Diwali, celebrating the festival of light and marking the start of new beginnings.
I understand Diwali is a time to forget the bad times and concentrate on making new bonds. A time for embracing happiness, joy and ultimately good over evil.
It is also a time for reflection that strengthens the relations between the Hindu, Sikh and Jain communities, all coming together to celebrate Diwali harmoniously.
I hope Diwali celebrations will be joyful occasions for all.
Leader of the Council
