The Society Update

Last month we hosted a reception for The Rt Hon William Hague MP so that the Society could present him with its award for his contribution to British-Australian relations and co-operation. The award was signed by His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh and by Lord Carrington, who presented it on behalf of the Society.

A great evening all around and thanks to the High Commission for their contribution. It was made even better by the excellent Penfolds wines provided by Treasury Wine Estates, along with a superb tasting of premium wines (including 2009 Grange!)

COMING UP SOON is the AGM of the Society (March 2nd) - click on events above. This is at 4pm in the Australia Centre and is followed by a separately-bookable reception in the Downer Room of Australia House in honour of Mrs Menna Rawlings, who is to be the next British High Commissioner to Australia.

Our trip to Chartwell, hosted by Randolph Churchill is on the website and will be bookable imminently.

Keep watching this space as we add new events and update the website.
