The village of Wing welcomed a wide range of Sikh, Hindu and Muslim guests to an annual event.

The second Rutland Guru Nanak Annual Lecture was organised by Peter Lawson and Resham Singh Sandhu, chairman of the Sikh Welfare and Cultural Society, and took place on Saturday at Wing Village Hall.

More than 100 people attended the lecture, including the Consul General of India and visitors of mixed faiths from Rutland, Leicestershire and Warwickshire.

The theme of the day was ‘one Britain, one nation’.

Proceedings started with a Sikh hymn by Daljit Singh Makan of Oadby, followed by a challenging talk by Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Clive Loader, and a discussion on love, peace and cohesion by Bhai Sahib Ji from Birmingham.

The group were fascinated by a talk from professor Swaran P Singh from the University of Warwick on mental health, wellbeing and spirituality.

The Rev David Clark discussed the links between Sikhs and Christians, with the large Sikh contribution to the First World War, and the Sikh community in Britain in modern times.

The Lord Lieutenant of Rutland Dr Laurence Howard and High Sheriff Trish Ruddle enjoyed the event.
