East Area AGM (in English)


The 45th AGM of the East Area was held at St Johns Church Hall, St. Johns Rd, Sevenkings, Essex on 6th April 2019 with a large oshwal members present. Everyone registered their membership and they were mingling with others.

The Chairman Kishorebhai Lalji Haria was not able to attend the AGM due to the sudden death of his sala Amubhai Shah in Nakuru. We pray Amubhai’s soul rests in peace and he has done many charitable works in his life and also worked for the Oshwal. Also, Babubhai did not attend the full meeting as he had to go to the sadadi of Amubhai.

The meeting was conducted by the three office bearers, (Vice-chair) Lalitaben, Ambritlal Shah Ashvinbhai Virpar Shah, and Lataben Ashvin Shah.

The office bearers welcomed all members and a prayer was said before members were called to eat hot khichi, cold drink, tea, biscuits etc. Thanks to Chandanben, Ashvinbhai, Vinodbhai and Narrottambhai to make a delicious Khichi. Khichi is a favourite for some EC trustees and east area member.

Once everyone had their food all members sat down and the meeting started.
