More than 200 people from 36 different nations across Grantham celebrated their heritage and culture last weekend.

Many of the party goers arrived at the annual Jubilee Church Life Centre’s ‘Celebrate the Nations’ event on Saturday, November 13, in their traditional costume and with their national dishes.

The event was organised by staff at the Jubilee Church Life Centre, on London Road, as well as volunteers and Sunrise Rotarians.

Kseniia from Russia added: "We met lots of new people who have immigrated to UK with different stories and backgrounds. I look forward to next year to meet more people. I will look to get a national costume and sing a traditional song.”
