AWS Monthly General Meetings are the perfect place to hear the latest AWS happenings in and around Surrey. They’re also great for activity and social sign ups, learning more about our Charity Slate and catching up with friends old and new! We have keynote speakers and vendors to add to the fun morning. September and January meetings feature club-wide Activity sign-ups. Free childcare (crèche) for under 5’s at every meeting (No reservation necessary).

Our meetings aren’t just about listening either. In the past, members have modelled, tried foods, had updos and even impersonated Audrey Hepburn.

A Message From Our 2016-2017 Club President

Welcome to another great year of AWS! I am honored to serve as Club President for 2016-2017 and together with our fabulous Governing Board, can’t wait to share all the fun things we have planned for you!

AWS is here for you, whether you are a new or ongoing member, we strive to provide a warm, friendly and supportive environment, and help you explore this fascinating country we call home. Whether you like cooking, hiking, the arts, history, antiques, exploring London, playing golf, fashion or simply reading a great book and then discussing it with friends over a cuppa ... you’ll be sure to find an activity you like, and make friends for a lifetime. I highly encourage you to explore as many of our 30+ activities as you can, you’ll be sure to find what you like, and if you ever have any ideas for a new club or activity, please share with us – we would love for you to get involved.

Besides having a busy fun social calendar, one of the things I love most about AWS is our philanthropic spirit. Throughout the year we have so many opportunities for you to get involved and help us raise funds for our Charity Slate. Together we raised over £25,000 in 2015-2016 and over £675,000 in funds and gifts-in-kind since 1981. So please, consider volunteering your time for a great cause, believe me, you'll be happy you did!
