President’s Report

       It is almost 4 months approaching in our LCNL Calendar and I am delighted
       to inform you that the programmes organised by LCNL and the associated
       operating bodies have been very encouraging and thoroughly enjoyable
       by Members of the Community. The feedback received is very positive and
       inspiring. Needless to say it simply enthuse us more to bring even better and
       enjoyable events in the future.

       In addition to the above activities, we all at LCNL are proud and honoured to acknowledge Her
       Majesty The Queen’s award given to Vinodbhai Kotecha- BEM and Nitin Palan -MBE who both are
       from Lohana Community North London.  Our heartiest Congratulations to both of them on their
       splendid work and achievement.

       I hereby briefly mention the activities for your interest, support and encouragement:

       Jaya Raw
       We had a discourse by Jaya  Raw on “Mantra for Success”. This was a unique short programme.
       Jayaji is a wonderful orator full of wits and humour.  She has intensity and immersion in the
       character. It’s extraordinary. She just has an amazing honesty in her presence and she delighted
       me so much with what she had to say. The attendance was good and feedback received from
       those who attended was very positive and encouraging. My sincere thanks to Sanjay Rughani and
       Ronak Paw who were instrumental in organising and the help from Amit Chandarana, Amit Karia
       and Pushpaben Karia was complete.
       Senior Ladies
       Senior Ladies organised a trip to London in an open Bus.  The weather was good and the tour Guide
       was very pleasant who made the trip enjoyable and a definite success.  Ladies got to see historical
       places with brief history.

       Mukhtar Shah
       Mukhtar Shah’s concert went very well.  This was a fund raising event organised jointly with DLC for
       LCF. Deepak Jatania and the Convenor  Dinesh Shonchhatra  worked very hard for this project.  We
       raised substantial amount of sum through sale of tickets and pledges received from some of the
       members. The programme in its entirety  was sponsored by Rasikbhai Kantaria of Prime Bank.

       Golf Day
       Our Sports chairman Dhiru Savani organised a successful Golf Tournament on 5th July. It has
       become a popular outing to play and to do the networking.  The response was very good.  The BBQ
       in the evening was enjoyable.  Metro Bank sponsored this event supported by HT & Co.  Dhiru was
       very much supported by professional golfers Ashok Sodha, Prakash Radia and Mahendra Gantra.

       By the time our next August 2017 issue of  News & Events reaches you all, we would have attended
       Saptah organised by Kotecha Parivar in which the whole committee was invited.

       Our table tennis practices have started at RCT on regular basis.  All other operating bodies are busy
       organising various programmes in the coming months.
