We are pleased to announce that our Samelan will take place as a “ Picnic in the Park” on

Sunday 23rd  July 2017 at Coombe Abbey Park , Brinklow Road , Binley, Coventry, CV3 2AB

You and your family members are cordially invited to attend this special event, especially our younger brothers and sisters. This is an ideal opportunity for them to get to know about their Gam and meet their fellow Bodali Gamvasi here, in the UK and at the same time enjoy a great day out.

We would also like for you to invite your sisters and daughters together with their families on our behalf to join us.

This is an ideal opportunity for us to discuss and debate current issues and plan for the future. Furthermore we would like to update you on the current affairs from our Gam.

This will help achieve our development goals for the future. Your donation will attract a Tax refund, adding another £25 to our funds. Please do seriously consider donating this year as even very little donation helps to improve facilities in our Gam and make Bodali “Simply The Best”. Cash or cheques payable to “BSMUK” will be gratefully received at the Samelan or cheques posted to our secretary.

Newsletter 2017

BODALI SEVA MANDAL UK (BSMUK)   NEWSLETTER JUNE 2017

Namaste, and Greetings to all our Gamvasis  in UK.

This year, the Samelan  “Picnic in the Park”  will take place on Sunday 23rd July 2017 at  Coombe Abbey Park, Brinklow Road, Binley, Coventry, CV3 2AB.

Coach travel willl be provided if there are enough people travelling from your region. Under 18 years of age go free and the rest will be charged £5.00 per person only.

If you are travelling by car, parking facilities are available at the park for a fee of £5.00 per car. Please come early as this is a very popular place.

We urge all parents to bring their children both young and old to enjoy a great day out. Various sports will be organised for all to take part in.

A simple lunch (non-veg and veg) will be provided by BSMUK. The park has provided a designated area for BBQ so you are most welcome to bring BBQ food and a portable BBQ.

There is a cafe on site which provides both hot and cold food as well as drinks including beer.

To book your place on the coach please ring a committee member from your region as soon as possible. For more information please refer to the attached poster or contact a committee member from your region.

On a more sombre note it is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing away of Dr Pravinbhai Patel. He was a kind and a generous man and a valued member of BSMUK. In the past he was a vice president and a committtee member of BSMUK.  BSMUK pray to bhagawan to give DR Pravinbhai’s soul eternal peace and his family the strengh to carry on.

He and his family have done a lot for Bodali Gam such as holding a Bhagawat Katha, providing filtered  water by funding the R.O.Plant and also a water chiller plant. Recently his family travelled to India and provided lunch for all the people in Gam. They have also laid down the foundation stone for the Cricket pavilion at Galiwala cricket ground. The building work will start after the monsoon season. BSMUK sincerely thank him and his family for all the generous donations to Bodali Gam and his ceaseless service both in the UK and India.

Other projects which were carred out in Gam over the past year are:

  • New build of toilets for pupils and staff at Bodali School
  • Additional street lights have been installed on the main road from Bhutiawad to Jalapore.

Dr Ramanbhai Patel funded both of these projects and Ramanbhai Motibhai Patel was instrumental in over-seeing these. BSMUK sincerely thank both  Dr Ramanbhai and his family for their financial support and Ramanbhai Motibhai for his considerable hard work in finishing these projects.

Bodali Gam has a new Gam Seva Mandal Committe and the new sarpanch is Shree Kantibhai Thakorbhai Halpati. Shree Randhirbhai who was the previous sarpanch is now the deputy sarpanch.

Shree Anilbhai has now retired as the school headmaster and has been replaced by Shreemati Savitaben.

Once again Namaste and thank you all. BSMUK committee members are looking forward to meeting you and your family at the Samelan – “Picnic in the Park” at Coombe Abbey Park on Sunday 23rd July 2017.

આ મળવાની એક આદર્શ તક છે જેમાં આપણા ગામમાં થતી પ્રગતિ અને અન્ય ફેરફારો અંગે વધુ માહિતીઓથી વાકેફ થઈશું, ભવિષ્યની યોજનાઓ અંગે ચર્ચા–વિચારણા કરી શકીશું, તેમજ એકબીજા સાથે પરિચય પણ વધારી શકીશું.

મંડળ તરફથી “રૅફલ ડ્રૉ”ના ઈનામો માટે ભેટસોગાત સ્વીકારવામાં આવશે.

ઍન્યુઅલ જનરલ મીટિંગ અને સમ્મેલનનો ખર્ચ સ્વેચ્છાએ આપણા પોતાના ખર્ચે યોજવામાં આવે છે, અને પાછલાં વર્ષોની જેમ, અન્નદાન તથા રૅફલ પ્રાઈઝિસની વસ્તુઓ માટે દાતાઓ તરફથી ભેટસોગાત સ્વીકારવામાં આવશે.

આપના દાનની રોકડ રકમ અથવા ચેક એ.જી.એમ.માં સહર્ષ સ્વીકારવામાં આવશે, અથવા આપ તે સેક્રેટરીને પોસ્ટ પણ કરી શકો છો.
