This was the fourth Symposium organised by the Friends of the British Cemetery and for the second time it was held in the Bull Hotel, at Long Melford in Suffolk. 31 people attended. This was rather fewer than last year, but did mean the conference room was not so crowded and stuffy.
On 19th October, International Women in Portugal held a coffee morning in support of Associaçâo Portuguesa de Apoio a Mulher com Cancro da Mama.
On Friday, 23rd September the BHS had a guided visit to the ‘Bairro de Madragoa’ Quarter of Lisbon.

An early start was required when 39 Members of the Royal British Club, The International Women in Portugal and the German Society came together on the morning of 6th October for an overnight visit to Porto. Planned visits to the factories of Amorim & Irmãos and ECCO had been arranged for during the day, arriving at Porto in the early evening.

Open Day was a big success with a good time had by all. Thanks to all the volunteers that helped make it so. There were 210 attendees compared to 130 last year, with 44 new members (and a promise of more that didn’t have cash) in addition to 98 renewals on the day, with many already renewed and online renewals continuing. 50 more interest forms had to be copied to supplement the 200 printed and additional beverages were required to cater for a turnout which exceeded expectations.

On Saturday 17th September, I was privileged to attend the Commemorative Cocktail to celebrate the 25th anniversary of IWP (International Women in Portugal) at the Inter-Continental Hotel in Monte Estoril. A most fitting venue: it was there that the inaugural meeting was held.
