February brings the rain, thaws the frozen lake again.
March brings breezes loud and shrill, stirs the dancing daffodil.
April brings the primrose sweet, scatters daisies at our feet.

Writing that makes me look forward very much to April with the promise of warmer weather!
This year Easter Sunday will be on the17th April. I hope by then many of you will be able to book holidays to either visit family or just for enjoyment. Happy Easter to you one and all.

I am delighted to announce that Peritus Investment Consultancy AG have become our Lead Sponsor. 
Many thanks to their founder and Managing Director, James Day, who is not only a member of the BRA, but also approached us last year with the idea to take on the role of Lead Sponsor.
We are looking forward to this new partnership and to welcoming James and his colleagues to our events in the year ahead.

As you all know, the Platinum Jubilee of HRH Queen Elizabeth II, will be marked this year in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth, in recognition of the 70th anniversary of the accession to the throne of Queen Elizabeth II on the 6th February 1952.
70 years, what an achievement!
Very soon you will be able to see where all the Regions are planning their celebrations in honour of this event.
The Platinum Jubilee recognizes a tremendous milestone for both the Queen and Britain.

We will be holding our AGM on Saturday 21st May 2022 in Bern. 
Fingers crossed; we can actually hold it as a live event this year.
Details will follow soon.
