A COLOURFUL procession made its way through a blisteringly hot Hitchin as a Sikh temple moved to a new location on Saturday.

Steady growth in its congregation meant that the Sri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara needed to move from its home of over 30 years in Radcliffe Road to premises in Wilbury Way.

The occasion was marked with a day of services and celebrations, including recitals by some of the world's leading Sikh classical singers.

A procession to the new gurdwara set out in the afternoon and the day was rounded off with a firework display.
