Tribute to Queen Elizabeth II

The Anglo-Swedish Society committee wishes to pay tribute to the life of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away yesterday. Through long and faithful service to realm and Commonwealth she has been an inspiration to all. She served her country  for 70 years, maintaining dignified stability through enormous upheavals. Our thoughts and prayers go to her family.

Our book club has a MeetUp page 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.
