Celebrating inclusiveness and friendship

volunteer-run activities. 

The New Normal ...

AWBS in response to the current government guidelines observing social distancing and lockdown has transitioned its culture to the virtual world.  Maintaining connection with our membership is critical during this period of isolation for friendship, fellowship, joy, learning, emotional support and mental well being.  We, therefore, encourage all members to log in and view the website calendar for social, learning, sports and wellbeing offerings as well as look for e-Blasts, Facebook updates and the monthly newsletters.  We continue to offer many diverse activities and events online and welcome your participation that comes with membership.  If you are not a member, we encourage you to sign up and enjoy our virtual offerings, we will welcome you with uplifting spirit and appreciation of your intention to get to know us, enjoy our offerings although virtually for the time being.  Stay well, stay safe and stay healthy.


AWBS International Women's Club offers social, cultural, learning, sports & philanthropic activities for the enjoyment and enrichment for its members in Surrey and Berkshire areas.
