It further read,” During the epidemic, the Gurdwara also ran a pop- up Covid vaccine clinic, which was one of the first of its kind in the UK. The Gurdwara encouraged other places of deification to attack misinformation regarding vaccine hesitancy.”
The structure work for the new gurdwara commenced in 2020 and is described as an emotional 37 by 32 measures wide, three storeys high construction, erected with the support of original donations. The gurdwara langar serves around 500 refections a day and the original community also runs the Luton Sikh Soup Kitchen every Sunday outside the Town Hall, serving around 150 refections.
