Slottsskogen_for-treasure-hunt-2021 sidways

If you need to get out and get a bit of exercise we are going to meet in Slottsskogen on 11th July 12.00 for a get-together – in real life – socially distanced of course.

There will also be a treasure hunt that can be done on the day of on-line if you are have not managed to get vaccinated yet.

TREASURE HUNT QUESTIONS 2021

The Anglo-Swedish Society and the British Club will have their annual ‘get-together in the park’ this Sunday (11th July) at Villa Belparc 12.00-15.00

Villa Belparc told us yesterday that they are open for groups, although the terrace (where we usually meet) is now part of the restaurant and the indoor café is still closed. However we can meet in the large covered area beyond the terrace which has plenty of outdoor seating.

The treasure hunt questions and map are attached to this mail. You are welcome to start the treasure hunt before Sunday. The answers will be available on Sunday at 15.00.

Good luck and we hope to see you in the park.

ELB(A) English Language Book club

girl with books

Our book club has a MeetUp page MeetUp.com/ELBexA/. We have moved out meetings on-line so that we can continue to meet and discuss good books. 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. Some people have discovered that they prefer to meet on-line and members who have moved away from Gothenburg can now still participate.

We have a summer recess and begin again in September.

The Eight books for the new season were chosen by members at the Book-storming event in June.
