Message for all Banner Bearers and Deputy Banner Bearers
Following discussions with The Gorsedh Committee, there are proposals to give Our Banners a more formal and recognised place at The Gorsedh as from next year. These proposals will be up for discussion at our AGM on the 14th October.
I look forward to seeing you there. All the best, Priscilla
