5).  Tickets for our Diwali Dhamaka:  Please book your tickets as the last day for booking is 15/10.  

6). We have emailed the 2019 Membership Renewal Form to members.  The Managing Committee has kept the renewal fee of £ 90 for the fourth year now, without any increase as we are sure all our members are very generous in their donations when they celebrate any occasions in their family.  We request you to download the form, complete all details and hand over to our Treasurer - Punambhai Patwa with a photo so that we can make the new Membership cards as advised before.  Also the last day for renewal is 15th Dec and if you have not renewed by then, we will assume you do not want to renew your membership.  If you are going on holidays, you have ample time to renew.

We thank Manubhai Haria for making copies of our Membership Renewal Forms and also Newsletter every month.

7). The Mananging Committee has also discussed about the photographs being taken at our programmes.  We had assumed your consent to take photographs previously.  However if anyone does not want their photos taken, please do let us know.

8).  Please make a note of the following changes in dates of our usual gatherings:

Instead of Thurs – 18/10, we will meet on Tues – 16/10 when we will have whole day of “Garbas” – there will be no Yoga.
Instead of Thurs – 25/10, we will meet on Mon – 22/10 and again meet for Diwali Dhamaka at VIP Lounge on Tues – 23/10.
