ATS Summer Reception 2014 - as popular as ever!

 

 

 

 

 

 



Thursday, 19th June

The  Anglo-Thai Society (ATS) held its Annual Meeting on Thursday, 19th June 2014 at the House of Lords.  Once again, ATS is indebted to Lord Geddes whose sponsorship enables us to meet in such an impressive venue.  Somehow, walking through the Central Hall on the way to the Committee Room for the AGM, past all the statues and paintings of prime ministers and people of power, gives an air of gravitas and the feeling that we can all make history, each in our own way, just by participating.

The Annual meeting itself was an informal affair although the Committee was disappointed to have seen just ten members attending, when there have been some twenty in past years. Thanks are due to those that did attend  and they had the added bonus of seeing the House of Lords in working mode. The Committee really does need members to interact by saying what events they would like to attend and what they thought of events in the past.  The forward programme is packed with a variety of activities, ranging from a talk on the political situation in Thailand to literary evenings and from the much loved River Thames lunch cruise to a visit to the Avebury World Heritage Site, Wiltshire.  The visit to Thailand was so successful earlier this year that another is being planned for early 2016.

 

 

 

 

 

 





The reception in the Cholmondeley Room was as popular as ever. How could it not be with the backdrop of the River Thames and the wonderful sound of the Thai Music Circle?  ATS Chairman Dr Orapin Dawson welcomed everyone and recounted the successful events of the past year.  Minister Nadhavathna Krishnamra welcomed ATS on behalf of the Thai Ambassador who is our Patron.  If members are interested in an update on the political situation in Thailand, the Royal Thai Embassy’s website at http://www.thaiembassyuk.org.uk is the place to go.
