AWBS International Women's Club

All Women of Berkshire & Surrey
Celebrating inclusiveness and friendship

AWBS is a sisterhood of international and local women living in Berkshire and Surrey,
who come together to enhance their UK experience through fun and fulfilling
volunteer-run activities. 

Join us

Whether you've just relocated to England or have been living here for years, the dynamic AWBS International Women's Club has something for everyone. Fun, Friendship, Fabulous Events!

Membership in the past has included:

  • Monthly General Meetings featuring guest speakers, socializing and great shopping from our Best of Britain vendors.
  • An extensive selection of member-run activities from London walking tours to tennis and Art history, plus special events like our annual Hats & Handbags luncheon.
  • Monthly e-newsletter, with information about club events, and resources for living in England as an expat. Our Common Ground book for members gives additional information on living in England.
  • Special discounts with local merchants who participate in our Preferred Business Network.
  • Volunteering opportunities to raise money for chosen local charities; includes anything from making cakes for a sumptuous tea for elderly people to creating craft items to sell.
  • Support and assistance from current members through our Helping Hands program. Helping Hands exists to assist members who may be in need of support and to enable all of us to coordinate our efforts to help. This could mean providing meals, transportation, childcare, visiting another member in hospital or just being there to listen.

We have no idea at this stage whether we will be able to resume normal operations and continue to follow Government advice.  Meantime, we are working on offering attractive get-togethers virtually for our members.

The annual membership is £80 (£50 from Jan 1st) or £60 (£40 from Jan 1st) if you are 60 or older. The club is active between September and May but some activities continue in the summer.

We also offer an Overseas Membership for £40 (£20 from Jan 1st) for those who wish to maintain links to us when they leave.  This option is not available to new members but only for renewals.

Membership application is currently suspended until we are ready to re-open with new and different events for this coming summer and potentially beyond.  Our usual programme cannot be offered but we will be just as active - but on-line virtually instead!  Please refer back here from time to time to check whether membership application has been re-opened.
