After the Successful launch of Kongu chapters in USA, Australia, and Dubai, he wanted to start a Kongu chapter in the UK.In December 2015, he came to the UK and discussed his idea with a few like-minded Kongu people.
It laid the foundation for “UK Kongu Nanbargal organization”. It was planned to conduct “Kongu Kudumba Vizha” in April 2016, to bring together the Kongu families all across the UK. It was a grand success. It provided a platform for the people from different part of UK to network and for the children to understand the rich heritage of Kongu Community. In continuation, the second Kongu Kudumba Vizha was organized in April 2017. Thiru Palani G. Periyasamy, Thiru Karthikeya Sivasenapathy participated as Special guests to grace the occasion.
To take it forward to the next level in the right direction and for better governance, an organization structure was established in June 2017. UK Kongu Board president, secretary, Treasurer, Vice president and Board members were nominated.
