Namaste All
We hope you are all keeping well.

Due to the current state of the pandemic, it has been decided that for the second year we will not be able to safely hold the AGM by end of March. We will try and hold the AGM as soon as it is practically possible to ensure the safety of our members and when legally allowed to have larger gatherings. Until we can safely hold the next AGM, the current set of committee members and trustees have agreed to remain in place.

In the meantime, please be reassured that the current committee and trustees have been working behind the scenes to ensure that the Temple is still maintained and managed effectively. Although we can't hold the AGM, but as our constitution demands, we will still be sending to our members only, the audited set of accounts. During these trying times, we thank everyone who has donated to the Temple to ensure that we do not eat into our reserves too much.

During the lockdowns, we have tried to keep the community engaged by running as many events online as possible. For this, our pujari Shree Riteshbhai has done a splendid job. We will continue to run as many online events as possible until the Government allows us to safely reopen so that we can hold the events as before. We thank you all for the online participation in the events.

Please note that the closure of the Temple has been reviewed and it will remain closed to the public for the present.

The Prime Minister of UK and Prime Minister of India have had their Covid-19 vaccinations. Have you had yours?

Vedic Society Hindu Temple endorses and recommends the MHRA approved Pfizer-BioNTech, Oxford-AstraZeneca and Moderna vaccines for all eligible at-risk individuals.

The vaccinations are safe and effective.

We encourage all of our community to accept the Covid-19 vaccination when it is recommended for you. It is provided free on the NHS and is not available privately.

If you are aged 50 or over, are clinically vulnerable, a frontline worker or a carer, you can now book your COVID-19 vaccination through the NHS website even if you haven’t yet received a letter.

You must book your appointment before you go to a vaccination centre. We are aware of other scam messages circulating – please ignore them. The NHS will never ask you for money or your bank details for your vaccination – it is free.

You can book an appointment now if:
• You are aged 50 or over
• You are at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable)
• You are an eligible frontline health or social care worker
• You have a condition that puts you at higher risk (clinically vulnerable)
• You are a main carer for someone at high risk from coronavirus

You can book appointments at larger vaccination centres or a pharmacy that provides COVID-19 vaccinations.

Raise funds for Vedic Society on AmazonSmile

Do you shop online on Amazon? If you do, you can now raise money for Vedic Society without it costing you anything. Vedic Society has registered on the AmazonSmile website.

Rather than going to Amazon website, you go to the AmazonSmile site: It is exactly the same as Amazon with the same products, same prices, same service but 0.5% of the purchase price will be donated.

On your first visit to, you need to select a charitable organisation to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Please search for and select ‘The Vedic Society Of Southampton’. Amazon Smile will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make through AmazonSmile will result in a donation.

For more information on AmazonSmile please click here.

A request for donations

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the Temple has had a great reduction in income.

The Temple's main income comes from donations, football parking and ACCA Hall hire. Since the pandemic all three income streams have dried up.

The day-to-day fixed costs as well as maintenance issues still need to be paid for. We are now having to use the Temple's emergency funds.

Your Temple needs your help more than ever now. We know these are difficult times for many of us. However, if all of us donated even £10 or £20 it will help collectively.

Please also consider creating a standing order from your bank account. A small monthly donation of even £5 will go a long way.

Please make a donation today

1. By a bank transfer or set up a standing order to:
Vedic Society of Southampton
Sort code: 602003
Account Number: 34671722

2. Send a cheque made out to Vedic Society of Southampton
to Vedic Society Hindu Temple, 79 – 195 Radcliffe Road, Southampton. SO14 OPS

3. Donate online through our website

Thank you for your help and support over the years.
