Perhimpunan Keluarga 2007

Theme: Empowering Our Youth

Our Perhimpunan Keluarga this year will be held at Youlbury Scout Camp, Boars Hill, Oxford. The annual Perhimpunan Keluarga is a key factor in bonding the friendship amongst our members. As in the past, we are proud to inform that this year's Perhimpunan Keluarga will be also attended by many non-Malays. This proves that the resident Malay community is not an isolated community but is increasingly playing a bigger role in the British community.

Perhimpunan Keluarga is a very important event for Melayu UK members. It is an event for the young and not so young, an event where new friendship is made and old friendship is strengthened, an event for recreation and for intellectual discourse.

The number of second and third generation Malays in our community has increased steadily over the years. This year's Perhimpunan Keluarga will also be the beginning of the active participation of our youth in influencing the direction of Melayu UK for years to come. Their participation is very much needed for the smooth transition of leadership from first generation Malays to those who were born and raised in this country.

This year we have booked 2 buildings with basic indoor accommodation. Members are requested to register early to enable us to allocate the indoor accommodation accordingly. Those who wish to camp should bring their own tents.

ITEMS FOR SALE

We will provide an area where participants wishing to sell items can display their products. To ease planning, please let us know in advance any products that you intend to sell. There will be no charge for the facility.
