2015 CHRISTMAS DINNER AND DANCE

This years Xmas Dance was one of the best SKA functions. Thanks to Ron for finding the beautiful venue and choosing the food, and Loy for all your hard work, behind the scenes Rupal, Jason and Nigel for their super job as MCs. The food was served on time.It was not too spicey but very tasty and plenty. Even Laura and my grand children who usually do not eat spicey food enjoyed it thoroughly. I think the children enjoyed the games organised by Sheila and Rupal and the Big Santa did a very good job.Three cheers to the Xmas sub-committee and all who made this function a memorable one. Capt.John Prasad thoroughly enjoyed the party and Chico s music and sends a big Thank You.

2015 FEAST OF NATIVITY

I am a keen fan of Monti Fest in Mangalore for many years. This year I happened to be in UK and got the opportunity to attend the Nativity celebrations as a guest of a member of SKA. The dedication and enthusiasm of the faithful who attended these celebrations in the Church Hall in Queensbury made me feel home from home. They had everything, the flowers (Mother Mary loves flowers), the blessing of the corn, the Mass, Konkani hymns. Notheing was a miss from the traditional flavour including the buffet lunch, home cooked vegetables, sannas followed by vorn. I thoroughly enjoyed the day at the church hall chatting to some old friends without the need to rush home as there were all conveniences attached to the hall. When I found out everything was free including the sugarcane, I asked one of the SKA Badge wearers if I could offer something. I was pointed in the direction of a DONATION BOX and was told it is only optional and that what you give in secret is for Mother Mary but will help towards the event. I was pleased I could put something in the Box. Well done SKA LONDON and look forward to next years celebrations. Thanks for a wonderful day.

One of the most prestigious and religious events I have attended for a long time. The life size banner of Mother Mary inside and outside the decorated hall naturally invited the faithful in. The hall was full to capacity and the celebrations were well organised.

PICNIC TO LIDO RUISLIP 2015

Dear SKA members and community, Thank your for organising this second picnic at the Lido. We were just recovering from the excitement of the first picnic at Margate Beach which was fantabulous. The Lido was just super duper where children, youngsters and families of the community got together and had a gala time playing kho kho, volleyball, throw ball, egg and spoon, seven tiles, tug of war and bingo. It was certainly a very enjoyable day with an array of games and traditional food cooked by our super community chefs. Thanks once again, God Bless you and we look forward to many more fun packed events. From Prakash, Michelle and Shawn Tauro

Dear Loy


That was an amazing party, well organised. Thank you for a brilliant party. The venue was very pleasant and the entertainment for the kids was excellent. Our grandchildren did not want to go home! My previous experience of traffic in that area is not a good one, but there was no traffic either. All in all we all had an enjoyable day. Sorry I did not get to talk to you and thank you personally. Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year

35TH ANNIVERSARY AND CHRISTMAS 2014 DINNER-DANCE CELEBRATIONS

One of the most well organised anniversary event.The organisers deserve a big thank you and the leader Ron Rodrigues can now sit back and and enjoy the fruits of his hard work on the website. The two MCs looked and performed as naturals for the job.The Nativity Play was of course seasonal and blended well with the mood of the audience. The Konkani short play Confessional Secret was some entertainment the audience were not expecting nevertheless had a hearty laugh when the plot was discovered and the butler became shame-faced. There were any numbe of raffle prizes and some tables even bagged two or three prizes. The luck of the few. Dinner was something which was well worth waiting for.In a nutshell an excellent function to bring everyone into the Christmas mood.
