Please note: This site covers the period that I was a Member of Parliament from May 2010 to June 2017.
Over the last few weekends, Richard has joined a number of celebrations held by community groups in the town.
Richard took part in the Molisana Association of Bedfordshire’s carnival tradition of breaking the ‘pignata’; he celebrated the 60th anniversary of the independence of Ghana with the Bedford Ghana Union and joined the Ravidassia community for the 640th birth celebrations of Sat Guru Ravidass Maharaj Ji as well as attending the Hindu Society of Bedford’s Holi (festival of colours).
Richard said: “I thoroughly enjoy celebrating the diversity of Bedford and believe it enriches us all. Thank you to all the organisers for putting on such great events”.
