Historic December GM

Tuesday December 6th was what I would call historic! Meeting in
historic Windsor Guildhall, surrounded by paintings of Queen Elizabeth with most of her relatives, where her son Prince Charles and Camilla tied the knot here. But the icing on our GM Christmas pudding was our Special Speaker - fascinating, award winning historian, biographer and novelist Simon Sebag Montefiore. Yes, the internet can't hold a well dipped candle to love letters from Imperial Russia. Not after Simon Sebag Montefiore has uncovered long held secrets from the Russian archives.

Remembrance Day - Armistice Day - Poppy Day - Veterans Day

November 13, 2016 marked one of the loveliest Remembrance Day ceremonies with crisp weather, sunshine and full fall colors at the historic Brookwood American Cemetery. This moving ceremony is put on annually by the American Battle Monuments Commission and The St. James Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution to honour those who serve and have served in the Armed Forces of the United States of America. AWBS, AWS and CAWC have the great honor of co-hosting the reception afterwards for the 100-150 attendees.

AWBS 2016 Christmas Fayre a Big Success!!

A crowd was waiting outside the door as bagpipes heralded the Mayor of Runnymede's opening processional of the AWBS Christmas Fayre 2016. The Mayor Councillor Alan Alderson and his wife the Mayoress walked through historic Founders Hall at Royal Holloway College, University of London. They were absolutely lovely and gracious to all, stopping to speak to TCP, The Clubhouse Project who are one of AWBS's sponsored charities for 2016-2017. AWBS are very grateful to them for this gracious opening!
