Welcome to Activities

There is something for everyone in the AWBS! In addition to our General Meetings and social events,  AWBS members have access to a wide variety of activities together.  Activity groups are established and organised by members who are interested in pursuing their personal interests and hobbies with other AWBS members and so you have the option of becoming an Activity Leader too if there is a suggestion you might like to put forward.  Joining an activity is a fast, fun, and easy way to meet new people and develop a sense of belonging in your community.  Activities run from September to June and we are always looking for fun, interesting new activities to add to our offering!
VP Activities

Book Club

Book Club meets once a month. The only requirement is a love of books and a commitment to read the book being discussed. There is no charge and no full year commitment. Book Club takes place during the day around lunch time.

Gaming Fun

Learn to play bridge in a non-threatening fun setting with other AWBS members.
Try your hand at on-line E
uchre. Mahjong is easily learned yet can be difficult to master! We play every week in the home of one of our members.

Country Walks

We are just steps away from some of the most stunning scenery in the United Kingdom with miles of paths, criss–crossing the landscape, making all areas of this charming country accessible. Walks vary from 3 to 6 miles and are typically once a month, September through May.

Glorious Gardens

England does gardens best! This group visits some of the most beautiful gardens England has to offer.

Let's Go!

This group enjoys going to a wide variety of day trips in and around the local area. These trips may include visiting historic homes or sites, doing interesting activities or tours, visiting museums, or shopping.


Informative and educational walking tours led by a tour guide followed by lunch once a month in different London neighborhoods. Sometimes the focus will be a geographic location, other times, a particular subject matter within London.

Food Explorers

This once per month food related activity will include activities such as high tea experiences, food foraging, food history and tours, cookery courses, jam-making, and more!

One-off Activities

These are put together by one or more members as a one-off and are meant to be social and fun. Traditionally they would include Ascot Race Day in June and Thanksgiving Dinner. We’ve also seen some Horseback Riding, a tour of a Gin distillery and more. Keep your eye on this one--fun opportunities often pop up!
