Welcome to UKHCA Durga Puja 2021
UKHCA would like to cordially welcome you to join our Durga Puja celebrations in 2021 over 4 days (12 October to 15th October). Like every year we are hoping to organise an open door puja celebration that you can participate in with your friends and family.
However, given the extraordinary times we live in due to Covid, we are humbly requesting you to pre-register and notify us of your attendance for morning and evening slots for all 4 days of the puja.
This will help us estimate number of attendees for food serving purposes and also give us assurance that there would not be over-crowding and the event can be conducted safely.
You do not need to pay or buy a ticket for the puja. The registration is absolutely free and you can do it till 1 day before the day you plan to attend. Although, we would be grateful if you do it as soon as possible so we can plan accordingly.
We want to assure you that our doors will remain open for all attendees within safe limits of capacity of the hall.
We look forward to seeing you during the puja days.
If you have any query about this please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org. You will also find other helpful information on our website www.ukhca.community
