North Area Election

As you may be aware, North Area, were unable to elect a committee at their Area AGM. On Sunday 22nd May 3pm at Oshwal Centre, we have re-called elections to appoint a new Area committee. We are hopeful that a committee will be formed and we encourage members with a passion to take the community forward, to attend the AGM.  Your nomination, your willingness to come forward and serve the Area could make all the difference.

Committee News

We are pleased to announce that we have co-opted Rekhaben Mahesh Shah as a Trustee to the Executive Committee. She has been teaching Gujarati to our young Oshwals in our schools for some years. She also assisted Late Kusumben and Mradulaben in developing our Gujarati School Syllabus some years ago.

Finally, we have had our first Executive Committee Meeting and portfolios have been allocated and once these are approved, we will share more information with you all on our future work and ideas we wish to develop over the coming years to take the community forward.

Please do get in touch with me if you have any questions or suggestions.

Jai Oshwal
