About Us

The Samaj was formed in 1989 by Konkani speaking people who emigrated from India during the early 1950s and settled in the United Kingdom. Formation of this association was due to the enthusiasm of a small number of families. The aim of the association is to bring people of the Chitrapur Saraswat community together by organising cultural and social activities.
