RE: ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
As per our previous notice, the AGM was scheduled to take place on Sunday 19 April 2020. In view of the current situation, unfortunately this will not happen.
Our AGM and Elections will be adjourned, with a new date to be issued once it is deemed safe to do so.
We pray to Allah (SWT) to protect us all during this crisis. Ameen.

Due to COVID-19 , following the Government’s restrictions on social gatherings over the weekend and current advice on social distancing, Birmingham City Council has made the necessary decision to restrict the numbers of Mourners to six people in both the chapel and at Graveside. (This is not including Ministers and Funeral Directors)
We appreciate that this may cause some difficulty with family members but these are unprecedented times and it has become necessary to prevent the spread of the virus and to keep everyone safe.
We would respectfully ask all Funeral Directors to inform families of these measures. If these restrictions are not adhered to we may have to consider further measures.
After much consultation and seeking advice from medical and healthcare professionals, the EC have decided to suspend *all programmes* at our centre from *March* until further notice. This includes Jumu'ah salaah tomorrow and all subsequent programmes including daily Jamaat salaah.
Subcommittees shall be issuing relevant guidance and updates where necessary.
The decision to close has been made proactively and with the best interests of our community in mind particularly the elderly and the vulnerable. We're actively monitoring the situation and regular updates will be provided.
Please remember to exercise caution in your day to day activities from basic washing of hands to essential travel reconsideration.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your continued support and patience during this trying time for everyone globally.
We pray for the wellbeing of the people around the world.
