Women's Institute

Recommended Posts

Hoping for some helpful advice.

A client at work is a mid 60's white British female. She is a member of Women's Institute. She says her group have a great interest in learning about history and religions.

They are based across different parts of London mainly in this group. She asked for my advice on which would be a good Gurdwara for them to visit in London?

I am thinking Shepherd's Bush is easy to reach via public transport. Southall and ones in East London maybe less so (and possibly would not be as nice to travel to).

They would like to have a tour and I guess, someone who speaks well in English to help educate them about Sikhi. I have advised they would be able to eat free langar when she mentioned food.

Otherwise, would it cost anything (they would be okay to pay a small fee if needed) for a tour/visit?

Also, it would probably be most useful for them to have a female Sikh tour (who looks religious) as she mentioned she had misconceptions about Sikhs being 'only men'?

Can anyone advise ? Thanks

I'd like to think she'd get a warm reception anywhere. Let her know to take off her shoes and cover her hair and sit with the ladies but I bet lovely folk welcome her before that.

Just let her know we don't do bake sales. 😂😂

That's probably because our women insist on not wearing Sikh articles of faith.

So fly her to Alaska if she is that desperate, i am sure someone will teach her all she needs to learn. To be very honest I have never seen a female sikh ever.  Here every sikh person you see is a man, with a turban and a long flowing beard,  either dyed in very dark red or bright yellow colors, mostly speaking in very unfamiliar dialects. Very strange.

Not sure if you are being sarcastic.....
