Autumn Lunch

Twenty one members and two guests attended this event were happy to be warm and cosy inside the Osteria Gallo d’Oro on a dull rainy day. After circulating during the aperitives on the covered, heated terrace, we moved in to the smaller dining-room just the right size for our group and set apart from the […]

Visit to Villa del Balbianello

With the perfect weather, the arrival by boat which goes back and forth every 15-20 minutes for visitors to the Villa, set the mood for this day. Romantic Lake Como, fascinating collections in a villa left intact by the previous owner to the FAI, and lovingly maintained by them, followed by lunch outside further along […]

September – Sunday Brunch

Non-BRA Event – 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

(Non BRA Event) – British Car Meeting

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 […]
