Children ate cake and had their faces painted as they celebrated the opening of a new community centre and school.
The new space in High Road, Ilford, was opened by Karamsar Gurdwara, also in High Road, and will offer everything from Punjabi classes to self-defense sessions and a parent-toddler group.
The centre was officially opened by the gurdwara’s head priest Sant Partap Singh as he cut the ribbon at a ceremony on Saturday.
The event included a guided tour of the refurbished centre before guests got involved with games, a cake sale, a bouncy castle and henna art.
Karamsar Gurdwara chairman Ranjit Singh said: “After a period of investment and modernisation of this building, we now look forward to the building serving and meeting the needs of the local community.”
For more information on the classes and services available at the centre call 020 7133 2627 or visit karamsar.co.uk.
