A celebration of life
Celebrating Indian culture, traditions, and Hinduism as a way of life
Basingstoke Hindu Society is a registered charity which brings people together, celebrating Indian culture and traditions, and encouraging Hinduism as a way of life. As well as serving the local Basingstoke Hindu community by hosting events especially for them, our charity work reaches out to other local groups too. We do this by managing the Basingstoke Carnival Hall on behalf of everyone in Basingstoke. In the true Hindu tradition, we do this to serve the wider community, ensuring everyone has a place they can celebrate their traditions and host their own events.
Plans for a Hindu temple in Basingstoke take shape
With our first community meeting held in June, plans to bring a Mandir (Hindu temple) to Basingstoke are starting to take shape. A BHS working group is being formed to take this proposal forward and ensure its delivery.
The response so far has been incredibly positive with the local Hindu community firmly behind the plan. The local Basingstoke Gazette has also reported on the meeting.
Whilst it is still early days for the Mandir strategy, we will post regular updates on progress here on our website.
We are proud to announce that, on 6th October 2018, the Basingstoke Hindu Society will host a charity fundraising event in aid of St. Michael’s Hospice. We hope all our members will support this great cause and show their support for the fantastic work St. Michael’s Hospice does to provide palliative care for our loved ones suffering with cancer-related conditions or other chronic life-limiting illnesses. This is our small way of saying thank you to all those who work at the hospice and to ensure their incredible service of care continues for everyone who needs it.
Full event details coming soon.
