Turban Tying

Tying a turban was just one of the skills being demonstrated at the seminal Faiths Road Show in Southwell Minster last week. Pupils from around the diocese enjoyed a range of multicultural activities from the different faith traditions, delivered by St Philip’s Centre in Leicester, who aim to provide positive community relations through education. Participating schools were Sturton le Steeple, Sutton cum Lound, St Anne’s Worksop, St Wilfrid’s Calverton and St Peter’s Mansfield. Riaz Rivat, Interim Director of the Centre said: “I am delighted that the Nottinghamshire schools have taken this initiative with the support of the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham, and Southwell Minster.”
