In late June 2010, Mr Muthalagappan and his family invited sangam members to spend a day during the August 2010 bank holiday with them at their hotel in Nottingham. This event took place on August 29th and was a great success.
The venue was their hotel, Colwick Hall Hotel, on Racecourse Road, in Nottingham. Both the venue and the lunch was sponsored by Mr Muthalagappan and his family.
As an interesting addition, the Gents were asked to wear veshti's and the Ladies wear sari's.
Mr Muthalagappan has written an note about the function which has also been recorded. Photos/video of the event are also available. This following links have been provided by Kumar Muthalagappan:
The members of Nagarathar Sangam UK would like to express our thanks and appreciation to Mr Muthalagappan and his family for organising this event and for the kind hospitality provided throughout the day. It was certainly a day to remember.
