Early festive season

Another Faith Focus group meeting this afternoon, with good things to report, about next week's meeting between soup run volunteers and Council officers about improving co-operation in the interests of both clients and the rest of the citizenry. The ideas about the design of a Faith Trail for city visitors, showing off our central area places of worship is on the agenda for development, also the public relations Faith communities promotional exercise in the run up to Christmas, around the theme of 'Celebrating seasons of goodwill'.

Plaid Cymru Councillor Jaswant Singh came to the meeting for the first time, which was opportune, as he was able to give the detail to the forthcoming Sikh festival, the 300th anniversary of the transfer of authority to the Granth Sahib to be the eleventh and final guru, by the tenth Guru, Gobindh Singh. The Cardiff festivity will run from 18th-21st October, with a vigil and continuous chanting of of the Guru Granth Sahib. I'm, hoping we can capture a little of the flavour of this occasion of film for use in our PR exercise, utilising the big screen on St David's Hall. We've now been promised video equipment, and the offer of a team from the Glamorgan University journalism faculty, for this and the making of festive greeting videos to show.

I've got a lot to organise before I go on leave.
