Don't replace Hari Singh Nalwa Academy - Leicester
The committee want to replace the academy with a wedding hall which shows complete disregard to the academy and its achievements over the years.
Don't replace the academy with a wedding hall.
Why is this important?
Hari Singh Nalwa academy is situated at Guru Tegh Bahadur Gurdwara on East Park Road in Leicester which is the hub and heart of the community. The academy has been running for over 4 years promoting health and fitness within the community. The academy currently offers classes in strength and conditioning, boxing, Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu, the academy services 100+ people (of all ages) per week and is continuously being improved upon, not only in the number of classes; coaches; equipment but also brings in Sangat into the Gurdwara and can be seen as a safe and positive environment especially for the youth of today.
The committee have decided that they want to move the Academy to a much smaller space to make way for a new wedding hall. The space offered to the academy is barely one third of what it currently is. This is a backward step by the committee and will have a detriment affect to the academy, community and Gurdwara as the academy brings in people from all walks of life.
Please take the time to sign this petition to show the committee how important this academy is and that downsizing it, will be downsizing the number of youth and even adults coming to the Gurdwara.
