It is the 40th Anniversary Year of the Windsor and Maidenhead Community Forum - and lockdown will not stop it from bringing people together.

The forum was launched in 1981 to strengthen understanding, mutual respect and trust between the different faiths within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

The next meeting on Thursday, January 28 will welcome Buddhist Robert Harrap, Hindu Naresh Saraswat and Brahma Kumaris Meera Javed together to discuss the subject What is the Purpose of Life? Their discussion will be followed with a Question and Answer session.
