BGVA Short Introduction

Nuneaton is a home for more than 2000 Nepalese (Gurkhas soldiers, their families and some other Nepalese) for the last 20 years. Currently more and more Nepalese have migrated to settle in Nuneaton from elsewhere every year.  The majority of Nepalese in Nuneaton has served as the British Gurkha Soldiers and they are now seen as having one of the great communities in the borough and have integrated well with all other communities.

In 2009, some of the Gurkha members felt a need for the Ex Gurkha Soldiers Association and formed their association as “British Gurkha Veterans Association (BGVA) UK” with the simple aim which is simply to provide the basic welfare support to the Ex Gurkha members and their families as well as all associated members from the UK.

Mr Om Gurung MBE who owns a restaurant in Nuneaton was the founder of the association. The association now has approx 220 active members.
