General Meetings

Please note that meeting locations vary, please check carefully where the meeting will be held.

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.

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

10:30 - 11:00 am Club Business

A Message From Our Club President

Welcome to another great year of AWS! I am honored to serve as Club President 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 2016-2017 and over £700,000 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!

I also encourage you to attend our General Meetings which run from September to June, and are the perfect place to catch up with friends, meet new friends, listen to interesting speakers and shop some of the Best of British vendors. Click here for dates and locations.

So whether it is cold, raining or the washing is piling up, stop and come join us for a fun morning ... who knows who you'll meet and you may even walk away a winner of our great raffles at each meeting. If you're new to AWS, I am confident that our returning members will make you feel right at home, because we were all "newbies" at one point and have so many great things to share! I can't wait to see you at our fun events, outings and activities!
