"This procession is in honour of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, who was the 10th Sikh guru. But this year we are also remembering the birthday of Sant Baba Mihan Singh Ji, who was the founder of our temple, or gurdwara, here in Foleshill.He died in 1994 and we have not forgotten him or his teachings

Mr. Bhagwant Singh Pandher, One of the organisers of the event, said: "The focal point of the celebrations will be a spectacular and unique procession headed by a most lavishly decorated float - glittering like the Golden Temple - which contains a copy of our holy book, the Guru Granth Sahib.
