MORE THAN 130 people celebrated Divali at a Worthing community centre last week.
West Sussex County Council’s Children and Families Centre hosted the event at the Maybridge Keystone Centre last Wednesday.
Activities included traditional and Bollywood dancing, food and speeches.
Coordinator Molly Miles said: “We are trying to build up a relationship with families from all of the communities in Worthing.
“We would like to encourage diversity because it brings knowledge and understanding.
“It was a fantastic event and everyone enjoyed it so much. We want to do more in the future to celebrate major cultural events.”
