MORE than 100 people attended a celebration of Bangladeshi culture in Henley.

Members of the town’s Bangladeshi community helped organise Monday’s event in Mill Meadows, while others travelled from as far as Oxford and London.



They played games including an Oxfordshire versus London football match and the “biscuit run”, where children had to run up to a row of suspended biscuits and attempt to bite bits off while others shook the string.

Guests were served a meal of lamb biryani and rustic chicken, cooked by Uzzal Miah and members of the public were invited to take a plate a food.

The revellers also played music and decorated the bandstand with balloons.



Abdus Salam, who lives in Tuns Lane and runs Cafe Le Raj in Reading Road, Henley, helped organise the event.

He said: “We’ve invited the Bangladeshi community to come along for a picnic and it’s all about having fun.

“We’ve done this before but this was the first time Henley. It’s a chance to celebrate Bangladeshi culture.”
