ATS 2011 Winter Reception at the Oriental Club

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tuesday November 15, 2011

The Anglo-Thai Society held its annual winter reception  in the splendid surroundings of the Oriental Club in London`s West End.  Members of the Society gathered to mark the beginning of the celebrations for His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s 84th birthday on 5 December 2011 and the start of his seventh cycle, considered in Thai tradition to be a most auspicious event.  As part of the celebrations for the King`s birthday, there was a display of paintings by freelance artist, Arjan Theerapan.  These were just some examples of his 84-strong collection of work depicting the King`s activities during his long life.

The Thai Ambassador, H.E. Mr. Kitti Wasinondh, attended the reception with his wife Khun Nutchanart.  The Ambassador spoke of the deep affection which the people of Thailand had for their King. He gave news of the damage wrought to the Thai people and the economy by the worst flooding for 50 years.  On behalf of the Society, David Fall expressed sympathy to the Thai people for the hardships that had been caused by the flooding and ATS Secretary Trevor Knox presented the Ambassador with a cheque for £1,000 as a donation towards the victims of the floods. The Embassy will kindly forward the money to the Thai Red Cross.

Charlotte Pinder, Treasurer and Membership Secretary, announced plans for the celebrations of the Anglo-Thai Society`s 50th anniversary which include a Gala Dinner, to be held at the House of Lords on 11 June 2012.  Members of the Society will be able to buy tickets at a specially discounted rate.  Other celebrations are also being planned – news of these will come later.

The presentation of Educational Excellence Awards did not take place at the reception this year, but they will be given at a special event in 2012  as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations.
