Gujarati Arya Association London ESTABLISHED IN 1971

The Future

To make Kenton Hall the central hub for our Greater London Community where we can all meet on a regular basis for social, cultural and religious activities. The hall should be an attraction for all age groups where the community feels it’s ‘their hall’ and want to contribute towards the organising and running of their hall. Furthermore, to see a greater participation from our next generation of youths and to see them build on our success. Ultimately, our goal being to progress our community and services to the next level, purchase the freehold for Kenton Hall, pay off our financial debts and reinvest back into the community.

Our Challenges

Currently due to a substantial commercial mortgage on the hall, plus the cost of running the hall, we have to hire out the hall at a price enough to meet our outgoings. It is our eventual aim, that once we have paid off our financial debts, we can offer our members a large subsidy for the hall hire. One of the big challenges we are currently facing is to better engage our youths, not only in participating in our functions and events but to also assist in the running of the hall, stepping forward to become committee members and in the future, taking leadership roles.
