There were about 23 people and 2 dogs who got-togehter in the park on Saturday. That made 9 teams competing for the the Treasure Hunt prizes (generously donated by the British Shop in Gothenburg). Two teams got the full 20 points and went to the tiebreaker.
This year we returned to an in-person get-together in Slottsskogen. This was a great opportunity to meet other members, old friends and meet new ones. We met as usual on the terrace of the ¨Villa Belparc (until the kicked us out to start the Blues festival).

To celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the British Ambassador to Sweden H.E. Ms Judith Gough and Lord Mayor of Gothenburg Anneli Rhedin planted an oak tree in Slottsskogen on 12th May as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative. The tree can be seen at (57.688597371656996, 11.948678953211768) approximately at the junction of Museivägen and Slottskogspromenad.
The Anglo-Swedish Society of Gothenburg will celebrate it’s 100th anniversary in style and with as many friends as possible. Therefore, we will wait until social gatherings are safe again before celebrating our 100th. Watch this space!
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.
