The Sikh community celebrated Vaisakhi with the Mayor of Warrington, Clr Graham Welborn last weekend.

It was marked with Akhand Path, a non-stop reading of the whole of Granth Sahib, the Sikh holy book, by a number of priests reading in relay.

The marathon session takes around 48 hours to complete and the event was completed on Sunday with the Mayor and Mayoress of Warrington Clr Elaine Welborn, assistant chief constable of Cheshire Police Gary Shewan, Clr Ian Marks leader of Warrington Borough Council, Mr Hassan Kazi and Rev Steven Kingsnorth among others in attendance for the celebration.
