Malayalee Association of the UK (MAUK), one of the first and leading Malayalee charity organisations in the UK is launching a weekly social club for families in East London and surrounding areas providing an opportunity for them to socialise, interact and have fun.
The club will be be launched on Saturday, 15 November 2014 7pm, at Kerala House, 671 Romford Road, Manor Park, London E12 5AD.
The launch will also be an opportunity for the community to suggest their ideas on what the club should do cater for them. We are also inviting members to join the launch on Saturday with any activities they would like to perform on the day e.g. Singing, dancing, mimicry etc.
Following the consultation the club will run every Friday from 6:30 pm to 10:30pm at Kerala House.
Activities being thought about are caroms, board and card games, computer games, and games competitions. MAUK wants this to be safe and secure environment for families to come together and have fun, therefore participants will need to sign a code of conduct and an entrance fee of £2 per adult per week (£2.50 for non-members) will be applicable. Admission is free to children and young people under the age of 16. An adult must accompany children under 16.
“From speaking to a representative number of our community members we are convinced that this club will be well received and supported. Positive response has been high and encouraging. Already, we have received suggestions to include karaoke nights, movie nights, comedy nights and even baby and toddler play at future evenings,” Aji Gangadharan, Director in charge of the project stated. “With the launch of this club, MAUK hopes to increase the participation and involvement of the wider, especially the newly migrated, community members in the local area”, he added.
It is your club and chance to shape what you would like it to do. Looking forward to seeing you at Kerala House on Saturday at 7pm.
