MOUNTAIN WALKING WEEKEND 
 
The Association hosted another successful ‘mountain walking’ weekend over the weekend of 21-23 May, 2010. It was a return trip to North Wales, this time staying at Beddgelert using superb self-catering accommodation known as ‘Plas Colwyn.’ Beddgelert itself is a small village but boast a number of hotels and bed and breakfast establishments and is a base for superb walking in the Snowdonia National Park.
 
 Guest started to arrived early Friday evening and the response was that good that some members had to be put up in a B & B because the self-catering venue was fully booked! Friday night saw the wine flowing and superb Nepalese food being prepared and a great meal was to be had by all.
 
 Saturday proved to be quite a hot day and ideally it could have been cooler. However, the group set off, led by Mark Tyrrell, first taking in Gelerts Grave. Whether the story of Gelert and his faithful dog is one from the middle ages or a Victorian Romantic tale is a matter of conjecture. Give story The party continued along the River ….. before starting to ascend gradually up to the ………. and its remains of the copper mining which took place in past times. Having got to the head of the valley it was time to descend to Llyn Dinas where people had a well earned rest and had lunch.
 
From the Lake it was relatively flat back to Beddgelert. Usually there is a superb display of rhododendrons at this time of year but only a small number of bushes were in bloom – perhaps due to the severe winter earlier in the year. That evening more Nepalese food was served and the diehards of the group stayed up until 1.00 am.
 
 Sunday Morning the group headed for Caernarfon to explore the famous castle there. Afterwards the party took lunch in various venues in the town before starting the return journey home. The Association would like to thank everyone who attended and also co-ordinator Mark Tyrrell for his hard work in organising the weekend

Those participating were determined to have a good time and things lasted well into the small hours.
 
NEW YEAR CELEBRATION

The arrival of 2067 in the Nepali calendar was celebrated at the Irish Association Social Club in Manchester on Sunday, 18th April 2010.
 
The number of people attending exceeded 200 and came as a pleasant surprise to the event’s organiser as they only expected 150 or so to turn up. In fact there were not enough chairs to go round and many were standing. Such inconveniences, however, proved minor as events kicked off at 1.00 pm as Puspa Shrestha, Association President, welcomed the capacity crowd of Association members and British friends, some of whom had travelled from up and down the country including, Wales, the North East and also from London.
 
A high standard of Nepalese cuisine has been the hallmark of past events and today was no exception, as it was provided by the Himalayan Restaurant in Manchester. Due to the large attendance the queues were very lengthy and slow moving. At one point people were waiting for plates! The restaurant staff was working at a busy pace to keep up with demand.
 
A cultural programme followed and the audience were entertained by a variety of dances ranging from traditional Nepalese to more contemporary ‘Bollywood’ style routines. The dancers who performed for the celebration were: Manila Balami and Tyani Shrestha, Aishwarya and Aashna Rana (Manchester); Bibhuti Upadhyay (Sheffield); Janie Mali and Alina Malakar (Birmingham). The dance routines were followed by songs performed by Dr Badri Man Shrestha and also Chongba Sherpa who were met by an enthusiastic response from the audience.
 
The dancers were awarded the Shanti Prem Award for their hard work. The award is sponsored annually by Immediate Past President Dr Prem Bikram Hamal and Mrs Shanti Hamal. This years “Woman of The Year” award was presented to Mrs Sunita Joshi for her work in training the young dancers who perform at events such as this. Finally the afternoon was rounded off by a raffle and prizes were awarded to the winners.
 
The Association would like to thank Social Secretary, Lilesh Pradhan, for his work in organising the event; and Raj Kumar and Sophie Shrestha from the Himalayan Restaurant for the superb Nepalese food; also the dancers and singers for excellent entertainment all round. Also a heartfelt thank you is extended to all those who attended this year’s New Year celebration – especially in such numbers – who helped make the event the outstanding success it was.
