A new campaign has been started to celebrate the 'weird and wonderful' side of Southall.
The new project called 'Seen in Southall' has been launched by proud resident Mandeep Singh Nandha, 25, who was born and raised in the area.
Mandeep started to upload his pictures and stories onto Facebook and Instagram three weeks ago reaching over 1000 people across the globe and he now has over 300 followers.
He said: "Seen in Southall aims to capture and share the diverse community and weird and wonderful happenings that make our little pocket of West London such a unique place to live. I have lived in Southall all my life and I am immensely proud of the area. It has its quirks and I am trying to get people to embrace the area by putting a positive spin on the things people tend to complain about.
"Using my camera phone I document the day to day hustle and bustle, the cultural beauty and vibrancy on the streets and then share the stories on Instagram and Facebook. Both channels have provided me with a platform to engage with not only local residents but individuals from all over the world.
"I have had a great response on Facebook, reaching over 1,000 people and gaining over 200 page likes, all within the first 2 weeks. My Instagram continues to grow and has already reached over 90 followers. There is nothing like this for Southall on social media. I hope this will have a positive effect on the community and ultimately provide a platform for Southall’s unique way of life to be showcased to the rest of the world."
