September – Sunday Brunch

We were a mixed bunch at this month’s brunch in Sierre but that didn’t stop the conversation from flowing. How could we resist Chanterelle mushrooms “en croute”, or the tasty well garnished pancakes, or even the freshly prepared salads.  A trip to Zenhäusern bakery and tea-room also requires tasting some of the delicious pastries… Our […]

Non-BRA Event – Anglophone BRISOLÉE!

We had our usual Valaisan blue skies for the annual Anglophone Brisolée. Although this was not a BRA event, there were many BRA Members present, which was great to catch up and non-members who were new people to meet. When we arrived Cynthia had decorated the wooden tables with wine leaves, fruits, nuts and orange […]

Second Visit – Queen Victoria in Lucerne

The first meeting with a talk by Peter Arengo Jones was so popular that a second was planned with his speech concentrating more on the Anglo-Prussian relationship in view of the Franco Prussian war. The museum had a small well displayed exhibition and an excellent one-woman recreation of the visit. Diana Divo  

(Non BRA Event) – British Car Meeting

This year Rolls Royce was the subject. Although  quite some way from Zürich a few  car enthusiasts trekked down to Glarner land and thoroughly enjoyed their visit which was made better by the welcoming hospitality of the Glarus English Club. It is hoped that our two clubs will meet again soon. Diana Divo  

Summer BBQ

Once again boiling hot, as is usual for our summer barbecue! This year we had to change plans and everyone bought cold meats along. The no grilling restriction applied to us as the hut we hold the event in is too near to the woods. Nobody minded and so we enjoyed the day just as […]

Scones and Strawberry Tea

Strawberry tea and cucumber sandwiches, my favourite! A little different this year as the sun was absent, but there was an interesting talk on living in Pakistan soon after the 2nd World War, then afterwards Kevin showed his skills on the ukelele and led us in a sing song. Great. Diana Divo  

July – Sunday Brunch

A group of BRA members and non-members met up at Zenhäusern bakery and tea-room in Sierre on a sunny and very hot Sunday morning in July. We all started with a coffee and introductions were made to some new comers to the group. Those of us who wanted to eat, chose a dish from the […]

Rheinfelden and Art Exhibition

A group of BRA Members from all over Switzerland met up for lunch at the Hotel Shiff am Rhein in Rheinfelden on a very hot day in July 2018. We all had a long cool drink while we chose different items off the seasonal menu and all enjoyed our delicious light lunches. We then walked […]
