On Friday 30th May a One-Day Sikhi Workshop was held at Leamington & Warwick Gurdwara Sahib. The camp was organised by the Education Group Committee at Leamington and Warwick Gurdwara with Sikh Seva sevadaars helping out. In such a short time all the sewadaars did a great job in the getting the camp organised, in particular Bhaji Baljinder Singh (Bali bhaji). The day begun with Simran and Prakaash seva followed by Hukamnama. The first workshop was a group work activity on the life of Guru Arjan Dev jee followed by a presentation highlighting Guru Sahib's main contributions to Sikhi. After lunch the younger children played games and made posters, and the elder group had a talk on Sacrifice. The camp ended with Simran and final Ardaas & Hukamnama.
