The Anglo-Swedish May Newsletter is now available

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.  

Please find the May Newsletter here.
