President's Message

On behalf of OAUK, I apologise this task has been pending for some years now and we have not been able to deliver a hard copy of our Oshwals Directory. We had been faced with many difficulties as several databases were merged and unfortunately errors had occurred. It has taken some time to rectify these errors. As much time has elapsed, and over that time, there will have been changes in family details with marriages, new additions and sadly some members no longer with us.

To help us rectify this and ensure that our merged database is now correct, every household will be receive an email where one was registered in your forms. Families where we do not have an email address will receive a form in the post. This process will take place over the next fortnight, so please keep monitoring your Emails and/or spam mail. Each household only has until Wednesday 31st January 2018 to correct any errors and email or post the form back to us.

New Data Protections rules come into effect in the UK in 2018 and it is important we adhere to these regulations and we request each family to respond to the emails or hard copy whether the data is correct or not. This is to ensure we have accurate membership records and not just for Directory purpose, so I urge all to respond quickly.

Tushar Jayantilal Shah

OAUK Hon.President
