We usually meet at this time of the year on the verandra of Villa Bellpark, Slottsskogen on the first Saturday of July and enjoy good company, good food and an English style ‘treasure hunt’ in the park. This year we encouraging social distancing due to the virus which is scaresly possible on a summers day in Slottsskogen. However, and on-line treasure hunt with the theme of Slottsskogen can still be enjoyed.

Here are the treasure hunt questions. Please return your answers to treasurehunt@angloswedish.se any time during the summer and we will let you know your score. You can take the quiz multiple times.

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 2020-2021 ELB(A) booklist is here!
