We are continuing to monitor the updates and advice from the UK Government in relation to social distancing. The new COVID cases are on the rise and it gives us a real concern. As a result, our Trustees have decided to do the DURGA PUJA virtually and will not be open to public including members. But to convene this we shall allow few of the Trustees, Priests and few volunteers.This has been a difficult decision to close the DURGA PUJA to public. However, our responsibility is to the safety of visitors, our team and priests. We thank you for your support and well wishes. We are extremely sorry for those who has been given the time slots for Pratima Darshan and their despair. Please keep an eye on our social media sites and please take part virtually. Please do watch PUJA and ARATI in Facebook live. We can’t wait to reopen to public in near future and welcome you back to help and support our next event once more.Thank you for being part of our journey so far, our thoughts are with everyone and we hope you stay safe and well.
