March 2012 Letter to members from ATS Chairman, David Fall

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear ATS Member

Following a varied programme of events in 2011, culminating in an enjoyable Christmas lunch at the Lancaster Hotel, your committee has been concentrating on organising events to celebrate the ATS’s 50th anniversary, which falls this year.

The major event, a Gala Dinner to be held at the House of Lords on 11 June, has proved so popular that tickets are already sold out. However, members who do not have confirmed places are invited to let Charlotte Pinder (Membership Secretary) know if they would like to be put on a waiting list. Members with confirmed places who find that they are unable to attend are asked to let Charlotte know as soon as possible. The cost can be refunded only if the places are taken by other members. Charlotte’s contact details are telephone 0207 908 9760 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Other dates for your diaries are:  a visit to Taplow Court and Eton College on 12 May; the 50th Anniversary Educational Awards Reception to be held at the Oriental Club on 12 November; and the Christmas lunch to be held again at the Lancaster Hotel on 14 December. More details of these events can be found on this website.

Other events being planned in this anniversary year include: talks on Thai politics, the Thai film industry and the Thai novel; a Thai cooking demonstration at one of London’s leading Thai restaurants; a boat trip on the Thames; and a performance of classical music by leading Thai artists. Please watch the website for news and details. We’ll also let you know of events being organised by and for the Thai community in the UK, eg. over Songkran and Loy Krathong.  Please let us know if you have any ideas for events – especially if you would be prepared to help organise them.

There will be some changes on the committee this year. Details will be given at the Annual meeting (date yet to be arranged) and on the website. Anyone interested in joining the committee or in helping with the Society’s organisation and events should please contact our Hon. Secretary, Trevor Knox, at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

We should like to use our website as a forum for informing members about other members’ activities. We hope soon to publish a regular “Letter from Thailand”. If you have any news or articles you think may be of interest, please contact Angela Daniel at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Our active membership continues to grow, to around 200. Please encourage your friends who have an interest in maintaining and developing links between Thailand and the UK to join. Why not consider giving a gift of membership for birthday or Christmas? You can do this by contacting either Trevor Knox or Charlotte Pinder.

Members of the committee look forward to seeing you at ATS events throughout the year.

Best wishes,

David Fall
