Dancing, prayers and a meal marked the 11th anniversary of the Hindu Society of Maidenhead on Sunday.

The 100-strong group gathered at St Piran's School in Gringer Hill where they were joined by special guest Cllr Sayonara Luxton, Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead.

On offer was a vegetarian meal and entertainment, including Bollywood inspired dances and a patriotic song about India's independence.

Chairman of the trustees Seema Sharma has been involved with the society since it began.

She said: "Not much has changed since we started, it is still such a nice place to meet and make friends and pray together.

"It has a wonderful community feel and it is good for people who have moved into the area.

"I wanted to thank all the committee members for their hard work to keep it going 11 years on."

The Hindu Society meets at St Piran's on the first Sunday of each month and describes itself as the 'collective voice for Hindus in the local community'.

At the monthly meetings, the group prays and has lunch together, as well as organising activities.
