AWBS International Women's Club

Welcome Message from our Co-presidents!

Whether you have just moved to the Berkshire or Surrey area or you have lived here for years, you will feel a sense of belonging. For some of you, the UK might be your first international move, for others the UK is the latest but the not the last country you’ll live in or you may be a native of the UK. Whatever your circumstance, you’ll find an instant bond with our members who understand and share the expat experience or simply enjoy living in England.

There are so many ways to get involved:

Our monthly General Meetings include interesting speakers sharing their life experiences, vendors offering a unique shopping experience and numerous Activity and Special Event Sign-ups. Speakers at previous meetings have included: Anton Du Beke, Martine McCutcheon, Ruby Wax, Eddie The Eagle and HRH Princess Michael of Kent.

We encourage you to come along to the Monthly Membership Coffees and Potluck Lunches, whether you are a new or returning member. These events provide a more intimate setting to get to know other members, make friends, and share advice and support.

Volunteer to help plan special events to raise funds for the local charities we support and help address the needs of our community.

Sign up for as many Activities and Special Events as your diary permits and have fun learning something new with other club members and build lifelong friendships in the process. With something going on almost every day, you’ll have a hard time choosing what to do, from attending art lectures or English history or French classes, Booked For Lunch book club, visiting English stately homes, such as Highclere Castle, attending Gorgeous Gardens, such as the Hampton Court Flower Show, exploring London neighborhoods and museums, or hiking along country lanes, playing golf, tennis or Mahjong, participating in Adventures Abroad, attending our holiday luncheons at Coworth Park and Cliveden, Royal Ascot Races in June to name just a few.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful club, all are welcome! See you at the next meeting.

With very best wishes

Maria Hayes and Sunita Shroff
