Perfect Summer Day for the British-Slovene Oxford Picnic

There was a record turnout for the annual Oxford Picnic of the British-Slovene Society on Sunday 2nd July. The sun shone, the grass around the Slovene kozolec (hay rack) was freshly mown, singers were in full throat and tempting tree trunks tested the climbing skills of youngsters.

Slovenian Ambassador Tadej Rupelj came down from London, and other participants travelled from as far as Wales, Manchester and southeast England. As usual, we gathered in the beautiful settings of the Oxford University Arboretum.

We are looking for a new Trustee. Will you help?

Would you like to promote contacts between Britons and Slovenes by joining the British-Slovene Society as a Trustee? At this particular time, it is important that we ensure bridges are not weakened. So would you do your bit to ensure that ties remain strong?

We are looking for a Trustee who would act as Treasurer. This requires basic accounting skills, but the accounts are not complex and do not involve large sums of money. You would participate in meetings of Trustees and contribute to their decision-making on all matters.

Please do consider volunteering. We are a convivial group, and you would be made most welcome. Contact the Chairman David Lloyd davidalloyd@btinternet.com if you think you can help, or would like to know more.
