Welcome to the website of Bracknell Nepalese Society.
Bracknell is home to a growing Nepali community. It is situated in the county of Berkshire in South East England and lies 11 miles to the east of Reading, 9 miles south of Maidenhead and 34 miles west of central London.
It is known that Nepalese people began settling in Bracknell and the immediate surrounding areas as far back as 30 years ago. From a few households then to what is currently believed to be upwards of several hundred households.
Majority of the Nepalese population in Bracknell is made up of former Gurkha soldiers and their families. Some were based in nearby garrisons at Aldershot and Sandhurst and upon retirement chose to settle in Bracknell whilst a number of former Gurkha soldiers who have made Bracknell their home returned from Nepal after gaining the right to settle in the UK.
Non Gurkha (civilians) Nepalese population comprises of individuals and families who immigrated to the UK in their own respective professional capacities subsequently settling in Bracknell.
