Chairman’s New Year Message

Last year was most eventful for the Society and we should all feel justly proud of our achievements and successes.

Our glorious 65th Anniversary Party was held at the stunning Argentine Ambassador’s Residence in Belgrave Square. What a joyful and a spectacular evening we enjoyed, and our heartfelt thanks must go to the Ambassador, Alicia Castro, for allowing us to hold this special event at this very special location. We enjoyed a splendid evening rubbing shoulders with friends, Embassy Ministers and invited VIP guests – truly memorable. One of the main sponsors for the evening was Aerolineas Argentinas, who donated two airline tickets from Madrid to Argentina in the raffle. Other sponsors included Pampas Plains – Chango Empanadas – Lomito – Hispa Merchants – and the Argentine Embassy Staff, all of whom helped to make the party such a great success. A big thank you too, to the Committee for their support and help in arranging to make this a truly special and memorable evening.

Our next event special event was the Christmas Party, held this year at the Instituto Cervantes Hall, Eaton Square. A great and fun evening when a good many members came together to celebrate this festive and joyous occasion. Many of our members assisted with the smooth running and the success of the evening, and our sponsors as always, were most generous. It really is a joy to see so many of our members working together to ensure a fun and happy event. A very big thank you to all those who assisted on the night, it would not have been possible without you !

Many of you may not be aware that we have had to move our office again at very short notice. However, I am delighted to advise you that we have now secured new and long term premises and moved Friday 13th December. Details of the new address as follows:

7 New Quebec Street; London W1H 7RH

The new office is very centrally located, close to Marble Arch, and we welcome all those who would like to visit us. The working environment is very convivial, and we are once again sharing with our good friends the Anglo-Portuguese Society on a longer term basis for hopefully five years.
