The inspirational personal stories of Ugandan Asians will be told in an exhibition by the Dacorum Indian Society (DIS) in the Marlowes next week.

Starting with the first-generation immigrants who rebuilt their lives in Dacorum, the display’s photographs will look at how they arrived in Hemel - establishing their community, families and legacies.

The exhibition will also look at the history of Uganda and the achievements of the second and third generations in the town.
