Navratri 2019: Starts 29th September, 9 days
This years Navratri celebrations will take place at the Market Hall, Knowsley Street, Bolton starting from 29th September for 9 days. The venue is situated on the 1st floor near to the central escalators and lifts. Free parking will be available during these celebrations. The event has been organised in collaboration with Bolton Hindu Forum (BHF). They have organised a live band from India to perform during the 9 day event.
Volleyball : Starts 7th February (And every Tuesday after that)
In the old days many of our members use to play volleyball, and over time this seems to have faded out. Well we are now bringing this back and it is open to all Men and Women, ages 12+. It will be a chance to stay fit, have fun, compete and socialise on a weekly basis. We encourage all the adults in our community to get involved. It starts on Tuesday 7th February, 7pm to 8pm (and every week, same time & place). Venue: Essa Academy, Lever Edge Lane.
Silver Sundays: 10th March
This is aimed at the Semi-Retired and Retired members of our community. A chance to get together on a Sunday every other month, interact, socialise, play games, and reminisce over tea, coffee and snacks. Each event will be of a different theme. We welcome anyone who wishes to sponsor and donate these events and help out. Should any members wish to attend but struggle for transportation then please get in touch with any of the committee members and we will make the appropriate arrangements to get them there .

Annual General Meeting, AGM: 7th April
This year our AGM will be held at Rumworth Club, Prescott St, Bolton, BL3 3LZ, on Sunday 7th April, start time of 2pm. We hope all members attend and encourage the youth and their families to also attend. It is our intention to make this meeting as positive and interactive as possible. We will also be collecting Membership Renewals on the day, so please bring along payment with you.
Cruise Trip: 21st July
A number of our members asked if we had any plans to organise a touring trip for them this year. So instead of a coach tour, we thought why not push the boat out (pardon the pun) and organise a Cruise Trip instead. This is another first for our Bolton Samaj. Thanks to one of our Trustees who worked very hard to pull an excellent package together we are proud to promote this Event. Already 18 persons have booked to go on this trip. Places are limited so please enquire fast with our Vice President, Kaminiben who will confirm prices and availability at the time.
Cruise Trip Dates: 21st July to 28th July (7 nights)
Carrier: P&O Cruises
All on-board meals included (Veg & Non Veg)
Porting at – Spain, France & Guernsey
Plenty of entertainment on board
Prices will include Coach Travel from Bolton to Southampton Port (and return).
And are based on a cabin sharing 2 persons
Navratri: 29th September
We are in the middle of talks with a number of Samaj’s through the Bolton Hindu Forum around the possibility of holding joint Navritri’s in Bolton. This would help improve on attendances, cost and also the quality of the event. Should this not come into fruition then we will look to secure a venue for our members and music for the 9 day event. We will communicate more on this at the AGM.
Diwali Party: 9th November
This year our Diwali Party will be held at the Holiday Inn, Town Centre. All ticket details will be communicated at our Annual General Meeting in April. Please note, tickets will sell very fast, so once they are on Sale do not delay to reserve yours. Also if anyone wishes to get involved in performing any dances for the event, then please get in touch directly with ‘Tinaben’ who is organising.
