In pictures: Faiths come together to enjoy sports in the sun

Children and adults from four faiths gathered on yesterday for the Windsor and Maidenhead Community Forum (WAMCF) sports day.

Friendly matches of rounders and cricket were enjoyed as well as more competitive games of six-a-side football at the eighth annual event organised by the borough's religious forum group.

 

 

Three children's six-a-side teams sweated it out on the field of Altwood School in Maidenhead, which resulted in team ABC taking home the trophy.

The adult's six-a-side football competition, entered by four teams, saw the Sikh Temple A-team compete against team Six Lions resulting in a tense penalty shoot-out.

The lions were triumphant.

Prizes were presented by Jeremy Harris, the vicar of All Saints' Church in Boyn Hill.

"It was absolutely wonderful, I can't grumble about anything," said the forum's chairman Karnail Pannu.

Karnail expressed the importance of the day in bringing people together.

He said: "It breaks the barriers between religions and there is a mutual respect for each other."
