Dear all The Anglo-Swedish Society of Gothenburg is pleased to announce that, in recognition of its centenary, it will have the honour of receiving the Swedish Flag on Sweden’s National Day. https://nationaldagen.se/start/flaggan/fanor-utdelade-pa-nationaldagen/ There are only ten flags presented each year by H.M. the King at Skansen on 6th June; however, this year due to the coronavirus pandemic the celebration will not take place as usual and we will receive the flag from the Landshövding, Anders Danielsson, at Residenset in Gothenburg in a private ceremony.
Many congratulations to all those, past and present, who have contributed to keeping the Society active and truly Anglo-Swedish over so many years.
We are still hoping to go ahead with the centenary dinner on 10th Oct 2020 but we will of course only do so if it is considered safe.
The Anglo-Swedish Society invites you to a social distancing lunch in the park.
We will meet for lunch on the verandra of Villa Bellpark, Slottsskogen on 4th July, meet old and new friends. An English style ‘treasure hunt’ in the park will be arranged for after lunch, suitable for children and adults.
Our book club has a MeetUp page MeetUp.com/ELBexA/. We meet on the third Tuesday of the month starting at 18:30. There are usually about 8 to 10 people at any one meeting. We discuss the book for about one hour and then ‘fika’.
Meetings are on the third Tuesday of the month at 18:30.
The last two meetings have been via Zoom and this has proved very successful.
This season has now ended but a new book list will be produced soon and posted here.
Come in and talk to Paul and Rosie. You can even fika in gallery.
Open weekdays and Saturday until 4pm
