How quickly time passes! I know it is a platitude, but true nonetheless: the months seem to fly by faster and faster every year and just like that, another financial year has come to an end.

In May we celebrated our 64th Gala Night, our annual AGWS fundraiser. A German themed dinner followed by a performance of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s opera Don Giovanni by the opera company Opera on the Move Co-Opera made for a festive and celebratory atmosphere, greatly enjoyed by all.

The Maifest will be celebrated in Germany to mark the arrival of spring. The Maibaum is a tradition going back to the 16th century.It is a great community event to decorate the tree or tree trunk and we all remember the village and town fete on the 1st May.
