We hope you and your families are keeping well spiritually and otherwise in these difficult Covid times. 

Every effort has been made in keeping the mandir open for Darshan in these exceptional circumstances . We are very pleased that many of you are attending daily for Darshan, even for a short while.

The Cultural Committee and Executive committee have also ensured that every major event has been celebrated online including many events organised with Pathshala Children and Parents and will continue to do so until we can return to normal times. 

We are also approaching the time to hold our AGM. In line with the Charity commission’s guidelines during Covid, the Executive Committee has decided to postpone this year’s AGM  until the earliest opportunity next year, . Fortunately there are no elections this year and we will continue with routine operation of Mandir activities with your support. The accounts year ending 31st Dec 2020 will be filed with the Charity Commission online.

In the meantime, we look forward to seeing you all online to celebrate Mahavir Bhagwan’sNirvan Kalyanak ie Diwali on Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th November – details to follow.

The government has also imposed a second lockdown where unnecessary travel will be restricted from Thursday 5th November for one month. Although the mandir will be open for private worship, please do not make this journey unless it is absolutely necessary and safe to do so. Their advice to everyone and the elderly especially is to STAY HOME, PROTECT THE NHS, SAVE LIVES.

We know you are all eager to do Dev Darshan in person at the mandir, so, following the recent government guidelines ( to open places of worship by Monday June 15th, we are pleased to announce that the mandir will be OPEN from this coming Monday for PRIVATE worship only. This means that we will not be able to have any communal activities such as abhishek , puja or lectures, in order to maintain social distancing guidelines.

We have put the following measures (in line with government guidelines) in place in order for this to happen:

• The mandir has been deep cleaned twice since the lockdown. 

• Please wear a mask or any suitable face covering to protect yourself and your saadharmis.

• Please wash your hands when you come in and do not touch anything unnecessary. 

• There will be a strict one way system to be followed. Please come in from the usual side doors and leave from the prayer hall double doors.

• Stand/sit only where markers are placed. 

• Prayer mats, prayer books etc will not be available for use to reduce the risk of contamination.

• Please restrict your individual, silent prayers to TEN MINUTES ONLY, as there will be a restricted maximum of fifteen persons at a time.

• Please do not congregate in the lobby or outside.

The timings are as follows: 

Mon – Fri : 9.15 – 10.45 am (preference to the elderly)

                  6.00 – 7.30 pm (preference to families)

The mandir will close promptly at these times with last darshan allowed ten minutes prior to closing. So please make sure you allow ample time as there may be queues whilst waiting to enter the hall.
