  10. Sikh woods celebrated at festival of light

    A Coventry wood, planted by Sikh employees who worked for Marconi and its many guises in the city, is to be commemorated this weekend.

    plaque commemorating Khalsa Woods

    Khalsa Wood was planted in Longford park in 1999 as part of the Millennium Woods project, and also to mark the tri-centenary of the founding of the Sikh Khalsa.

    Bali Panesar, who was working at Marconi as an engineer, and remembers planting the trees, said unfortunately over the years the plaque had become neglected and obscured.

    A new larger plaque is to be unveiled on Sunday as part of the Festival of Lights event organised by the Sikh Union and Lions Club.
