Default Details for British Womens Club

Hi
My hubby and I have been here 5 weeks now and I've only just heard about the British Womens Club.
I've been an expat wife for 6 years in Africa and these clubs really help to get you started sociably, but my online searches in Barbados have drawn a blank.
Can anyone give me contact details for this club?
Thanks in advance.

I found this on the Internet if it helps? I've never been to anything like this and I'm moving in 3 days to Barbados are they fun?

Please contact us at [email protected] if you would like further information. If you would like us to call you back, please include your telephone number. We hold our monthly meeting in the British Embassy and, because of the security issues, our membership is only open to British passport holders and spouses or partners of British passport holders.

HI... I have info on the British Womens Club.. I will send it to you in a private message as I'm not sure they want certain info public.

having said that.. their normal meeting is the 1st Tuesday in the month at the Main Guard building which is part of the Garrison Historical buildings. The stay active during the July and August (but don't have an actual meeting). Looks like they are having some coffee mornings and get togethers during this month

@princessbananahamock - these clubs are great for meeting people, finding out more about the country you're living in and finding other groups that suit your interests.

@Sunniebgi - not sure if you've sent the info yet as I don't see a message but thanks for your help so far. I'm a bit perplexed as to why the club is secretive about their info ... They usually are easy to find to encourage new expats to join.

check your private messages.. I sent it last night. it's not that they are secretive.. but I'm not a member and sometimes these groups don't want all sorts of e-mail or info out there.. I'm actually the president of the American Women's Club and we have one e-mail address for the club that we have out there.. what I sent you was some upcoming events and the membership chair direct contact.

Hi there.

As far as I can tell from the system , there is nothing preventing the sending and receiving of PMs.

Have you checked your 'sent' box. Sent PMs show up there.

If there is nothing in your 'in box' perhaps the person simply hasn't replied.

I'll look but there are all our previous conversations from us both and she kindly invited me somewhere and I don't want it to look rude that I've not replied. Previously I've not had a problem just over the weekend.
I'm not great at technology and my internet isn't great unless I'm in a particular room. Thanks for the advice.
