On August 28th the Society is again visiting the hallowed halls of the Reform Club for a dinner with a South Australian theme, to celebrate the surprising hidden connection between the Club and the State. Guests of Honour on the night will be the High Commissioner for Australia, The Hon Alexander Downer AC and Professor Jeff Nichols, the expert who revealed the story.
On 12th of May, 75 members and guests had the honour of attending a formal dinner in honour of our President, Lord Carrington, in the wonderful surroundings of the Charterhouse.
A host of dignitaries attended, including of course Lord Carrington himself, who gave a moving and eloquent talk about the modern relationship between Australia and Britain and the important role our Society plays in caretaking those links.
