SutarShree Prajapati Association (UK) Coventry Branch was formed in May 1974. We were the first Kumbhar Prajapati  Community in the UK to form the Association and following its successful  establishment, today there are thirteen branches in other town and cities of the  UK under the umbrella of SPA Headquarter UK. The aim of the organisation is to  promote in the field of Hindu religion, culture and education and to relieve  poverty and sickness within the community of Hindu Prajapati-Kumbhar whose  routes originated from South Gujarat (from the district of Surat, Navsari,  Bardoli and Valsad) India.

The majority of people who  have settled in Coventry are migrants who have arrived from East Africa (Kenya,  Tanzania, Uganda) and India in 1960's and 1970's. Today, in the changing world  with modern technology we are a community who are looking forward but at the  same time looking to maintain and keep culture values, identity and unity.

The Coventry branch is a  charity registered and it is autonomous but maintains close bond and links with  national association and other SPA UK branches. The branch activities are held  at both local and national levels. These activities include Navratri Festival  Celebration, Diwali Celebration, Annual Sports Day, Mahila Samelan (Ladies  Gathering), Religious Functions, Youth Ball and Family Picnics. Branch supports  and assists in the fund raising activities for charitable purpose at both local  and national levels. A community magazine "Prajapati Sandesh" is published  annually by SPA HQ, which informs details about the activities and reports of  all the branches.
