Litlington's over-60s club was treated to an exotic Hindu experience.
To mark the Hindu New Year, village resident Dina Mandalia was keen to share her culture with her neighbours as part of the famous Diwali Festival, also known as the Festival of Lights.
So this week Dina hosted a Saris and Slacks event at Litlington Village Hall where she revealed to the over-60s the history and ideas behind the textures and colourful patterns that make the traditional Hindu fashion so spectacular.
The group was also lucky enough to taste some delicious Diwali recipes.
Dina said: "People want to learn about other cultures but it is important to do it in a fun way. I have had a lot of good feedback and people were thrilled to take part."
After trying on different costumes and finding out how it felt to wear a sari, Dina's guests were allowed to take home some of their favourite outfits.
