They celebrated Holi (Festival of Colours) on March 20.

Spokesman for the local branch of The Indian Cultural Association, Narendra Patel said: “Holi is an ancient Hindu festival that celebrates the arrival of spring and has now become popular with non-Hindus as well as people from other communities outside Asia, both young and old.

“From lighting the Holika (bonfire) to throwing “Gulal” (non-toxic, water-soluble powdery paint), Holi is a wonderful celebration to bring the community together and celebrate the triumph of good over evil.”
