Dear All
I hope you are all well and coping with the lockdown.
As you are aware, the temple is closed for public, we have enthusiastic volunteers who will be able to help you when in isolation.
Please feel free to contact them directly:
Suresh : 07504 563 494
Santosh :07595 880 437
Stay Safe.



As we are aware of the current crisis and going through unprecedented times, we are sad to tell you and we are aware that things are going to get worse before they get better.
These are extraordinary times, and our absolute priority is to ensure the health and safety of our fellow citizens.
We understand there are plenty of vulnerable people within our Indian society who really need a bit of help.
A support group is set up within HCA to help deal with the challenge.
A few of the volunteers have come forward to help the elderly and vulnerable. The volunteers will help you with eg: groceries shopping, support with any online transactions or advice.
The volunteers will cover a few local areas, based on the available current volunteers’ house location and your house location. As we build the volunteers’ database, we will update you on the areas that we can cover to support you.
The guidelines for support:
1) The volunteers will provide support to vulnerable people only (over 60s and disabled people)
2) Depending on the volunteers’ own family commitments, the volunteers will support you or stop with the support.
3) The volunteers are full time working professionals. So, the support you get is after their work and also family commitments. Unfortunately, No URGENT calls /services will be offered.
4) We leave the shopping outside of your doorstep for you to collect.
5) All the communication with the volunteers will be through the phone only.
Please see below, the names and contact numbers of the volunteers who you can contact for support. They pass on the requirements to us and we delegate assignments based on who is available and the areas to be covered.
Suresh : 07504 563 494

Please take care of yourselves and your loved ones. I know that we’re going to get through this, together.



Dear All
Following recent developments and growing concern regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19), we have to inform you that the India Centre and the Hindu Temple will remain closed to the public from tomorrow i.e. 21st March 2020 until further notice.
This decision was not taken lightly. We have been following advice from Public Health Wales as well as the UK Government, and due to the significant increase in confirmed cases in Wales, we do not want to risk the further spread of the virus in Wales.
During this difficult time, Panditji will continue to pray every day in the Temple for you and your family members, but no member of the public will be allowed in the temple.
If there is a crisis for which you may wish to visit the temple to seek God’s blessings, please contact Pandit ji on 07999 267068 between 9.30 to 11.30 AM or 6-8 PM and he will be able to guide you.
The situation is very fluid and we will continue to monitor it and assess the possibility of public access to the temple later. We will send further communication on this as soon as possible.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support of India Centre’s activities and events and we hope to see you soon. Be safe!
Best wishes,
