Community & Police Engagement Forum

Last night I attended a meeting of the Bexley CPEG which was held at the Guru Nanak Durbar Sikh Temple in Belvedere. I have never been to a Sikh temple before so I took up the offer to be shown around.

There was food provided in a communal eating area and the worship room (I’m not sure of the correct term) was open and without seating. The informality of the temple is a huge contrast to the layout and traditions of Christian churches.
The meeting was very well attended and we had discussed a range of issues including local police performance, anti burglary initiatives, the policing pledge and the plans for the future. I really enjoyed the meeting and it was great to glimpse into the traditions of another faith.
