    Dear Editor,

    I would like to send my best wishes and warmest greetings to all those in Cardiff Central and across Wales who are celebrating Diwali.

    Diwali, also known as the Festival of Light, is a fantastic family festival where Hindus, Jains and Sikhs come together to reflect on the events of the past in order to prepare and change for the future. The symbolic lighting of lamps, representing life, hope and new beginnings sends a powerful message of peace and unity to us all.
