Happy Dashain!

Updated: Oct 16, 2018

I was delighted to be invited to the Andover Napalese community’s Dashain celebration last night - an important festival in the Nepalese Hindu calendar, which celebrates victory over evil demons.

The Nepalese community in Andover have been strongly involved in the development of the Andover Vision, had a float in the Andover carnival for the last two years and are keen to get more involved in community life.

Nearly all of the men are either former or serving Gurkhas - my thanks and gratitude to them all.
