Diwali is being celebrated across London today (13 November) by London’s Sikh, Hindu and Jain communities.
Local Assembly Member Joanne McCartney said:
“Diwali is a fantastic family festival where Enfield and Haringey’s Hindu, Sikh and Jain communities come together to celebrate the future and reflect our past accomplishments.
“It has been an incredible year in London and Diwali is the perfect time to contemplate what we have all achieved together. Diwali is the festival of light and its central message is one of good overcoming evil and light triumphing over darkness.
“I wish you a prosperous Diwali and send my best wishes to all in Enfield and Haringey celebrating this wonderful festival.”
