More than 250 enjoyed the party atmosphere of South East England Malayalee Association’s celebration for Christmas and the New Year.
The event was held in St Mary Magdalene’s church hall and everyone there enjoyed the music, dance, and inspiration as well as the five course feast to follow.
SEEMA is a cultural, social and voluntary organization for Malayalee and Keralite immigrants of Indian origin. The organisation was founded in 2005 with the purpose of promoting and maintaining goodwill and friendship, to provide opportunity for all Malayalees in the South East to meet and promote cultural socialization within their community members, particularly for younger generations. SEEMA holds family days-out, cultural and sportive events, dance (Bharathanatyam) and Malayalam language classes for children as well as celebrating the harvest festival ‘Onam’ and Christmas.
SEEMA secretary Shery Mathew said ahead of the celebration: “We are committed to have remarkable event this year, which would make every Malayalee in East Sussex proud of their culture, identity and values.”
