Vaisakhi celebrations

The 18 April saw Gravesend town centre come to a standstill as 10,000 people, including Gullands’ staff, took to the streets to celebrate Vaisakhi.

The celebrations began with a procession through Gravesend before returning to the guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara.

Davinder Singh Bains, President of Siri Guru Nanak Darbar Gravesend comments:

“The Gurdwara plays an important role in the community of Gravesham and it is humbling to see so many visitors from all walks of life attending every day.  The Sikh religion teaches us to treat everyone as an equal.  That is why we have worked hard over the last few years to ensure that celebrations such as Vaisakhi have evolved from being just an event for the Sikh community, to being one which brings together the diverse communities of the borough.  It was great to have Gullands Solicitors amongst other local businesses present this year at the celebrations and we hope to see them again next year supporting religious events such as Vaisakhi, which hold a prominent place within our community. “

Blair Gulland, Chairman of Gullands comments: “This is a really big event for the community in Gravesend and I am proud that Gullands has been a part of it.  It is such a colourful and vibrant event and we look forward to taking part next year.”
