We are a registered charity community voluntary organisation. The association was formed under this name in December 1993, with the inspiration of small group of like-minded individuals from the local Hindu community who felt the need for an association to keep the traditions of Hinduism and pass it onto future generations . Then in April 1994 a general meeting was held to set up an Executive committee and the constitution was adopted.
