UPDATE 2020: from our President

Jay Shree Krishna,

We hope you are all keeping safe and well. We the management committee of SPA Luton Branch are letting you know that all our regular activities and events, that were scheduled during 2020 were cancelled under the governments instructions. 

These include

  • Our monthly management committee meetings
  • Summer BBQ
  • Sports activities with SPA UK
  • Seaside trip
  • Annual Bhajan Bhojan
  • Annual Dinner Dance
  • Christmas get together

As you are aware that the government has called a stop to gatherings in more than six people – indoors and outdoors. Fines are imposed if you break the regulations, so limited socialising to prevent spreading of COVID-19 and so these are hard times. These new guidelines do not allow us to organise social or cultural activities.

If anybody needs to talk or ask for any help please get in touch with the committee members.  We will keep you posted if anything changes. We hope and pray that this pandemic passes soon.

Remember…

HANDS, FACE, SPACE.

Stay safe and keep checking our website for updates.

SPA UK AGM Update

Hi All,

I know we’ve been very quiet since the beginning of this pandemic and many people are struggling, whilst others are thriving. I hope you are all doing well.

We have a few words from the SPA UK Secretary in regards to the SPA UK AGM that was going to happen earlier in the year.

Regards,
Arun.


Namaste All

Hope you and your families are well.

Unfortunately due to the pandemic the scheduled SPA (UK) AGM which was due to be held on Sunday 17th May 2020 in Rugby had to be cancelled. The SPA (UK) Executives had meeting on Sunday 28th June 2020 and have set a date of Sunday 20th September 2020 to hold a zoom AGM.

Minutes from the last meeting, nomination forms, the accounts for 2019/2020 and the agenda will be sent out in due course.

If there are any questions please do not hesitate to contact myself.

P.S. can I stress to all branches to start looking for new people to take up roles at the national level.

Jai Hind
Vipul H Mistry
SPA (UK) Secretary
2019-2020

Hi Everyone,

Following the completion of our successful Bhajan Bhojan programme last month, we now have our Dinner Dance coming up. Please take a look at our flyer and if you want tickets, get in touch with the reps mentioned.

We’ve also attached our Newsletter for our bi-annual update, so give that a read as well. It’s fully loaded with everything we’ve been up to and what’s coming up!

Finally, SPA (UK) has chosen the SPA ITF as their charity of the year. The attached document contains an English flyer and Gujarati flyer, so please show this to everyone to raise awareness as to what and who the SPA ITF helps out.

Thanks!

Beach Trip Cancelled :(

Our Beach Trip for this year has been cancelled as we haven’t managed to fill the coach with enough people. If you were looking forward to it please keep an ear open to see if we manage to organise a replacement trip in the near future. If you weren’t able to make it due to a conflict of schedule please let us know so we can arrange it on a different day.
