Mayor at Chester Festival of Diwali parade

Saturday saw our Mayor represent Frodsham’s Hindu community and their friends in Chester at the Festival of Diwali parade. This very colourful annual event celebrates the Hindu festival of lights.

The Mayor thanks all concerned for their hospitality especially the Lord Mayor of Chester for allowing him to share the stage with her and Chris Matheson MP for City of Chester. Another date for Cllr Poulton’s diary next year!
