Making the relationship stronger

This week has seen two events to improve understanding between the local council and the Nepalese community.  On 24 April representatives from the Nepalese community visited the Civic Centre to see a presentation on the work of Shepway District Council and on 28 April the Folkestone Nepalese Community (FNC) hosted a presentation at the Shorncliffe Community Centre on the history, culture and customs of the Nepalese and their 200 year friendship with Great Britain.

Local councillors turned out to support the event where the principal speaker was Cllr Nabin Siwa.
