My Father - West Yorkshire's First Sikh Crossing Warden

When good things happen in our lives, it makes us remember the family members that are no longer with us. On October 9th 1984 my father Gurdev Singh Lota was interviewed for an article in Yorkshire Evening Post. The article pictured below was to highlight the fact that he was West Yorkshire's very first Sikh School Warden.

In order for my father to become a Crossing Warden, West Yorkshire Police provided him with 30ft of special reflective material of which he tied his Turban with.

I vividly remember walking home from school and he would be helping children cross the very busy Chapeltown Road in Leeds.

He sadly passed away in 2003 but his memory will always live on.
