May 2014

Some of our members recently enjoyed a guided visit to the Jewish Museum of London. Although the number of members attending wasn’t as high as we would have hoped, those who attended found the visit and introductory talk most interesting.
The Club has been very involved in recruiting new members and we are pleased to say that thirty have joined the club since the AGM. A drinks reception was held especially to welcome them in the Caledonian Club on the 29th April with many new members and some committee members attending. It was a very successful evening and we are hoping to see some of the new members at our forthcoming events.
Our next event is the club’s Annual Dinner. This will be held on Thursday 12th June 2014 in Hush Brasserie, 8 Lancashire Court, Brook Street, London. The nearest Tube station to the venue is Bond Street. The cost of the dinner will be £52.50 to include a pre-dinner drinks reception, a three-course dinner with wine and tea or coffee to finish. The drinks reception will be from 7pm followed by dinner at 7.30pm. Our guest speaker for the evening will be Mary Macleod MP, a graduate of the University of Glasgow. Mary Macleod has been the Conservative MP for Brentford and Isleworth since the 2010 General Election having worked previously as a business consultant and as a policy advisor to the Queen. We are sure she will prove to be a very interesting guest speaker. The Principal of the University of Glasgow, Professor Anton Muscatelli will also be attending the dinner as our guest. The Principal is due to be in London on the 12th June and the Alumni Office has arranged his schedule in London to allow him to attend. It is an honour for the Club that he will be our guest and we are sure those attending will enjoy his company at the event.
All replies and payments for the Annual Dinner must reach the Events Secretary by the 1st June 2014. No refunds can be issued after this date. Payments can either be made by bank transfer or by sending a cheque payable to GUWC to Anne O’Hagan. If you pay by bank transfer, can you e-mail the Events Secretary to let her know that you are going to attend and that you have transferred your payment? Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about the Annual Dinner.

LCLES – the Annual Lunch of LCLES will be held on the 21st May in the Caledonian Club when the speaker will be Lady Elizabeth Vallance. Further details are available from Marjorie Bremner Membership Secretary.
