Queen Elizabeth

The British Residents’ Association (BRA) of Switzerland has invited all citizens of Commonwealth countries to join them at a Garden Party to celebrate HM The Queen’s 92nd birthday!

Organized by the Romandie West Region of the BRA, this special event will take place in the magnificent grounds of the Geneva English School in Genthod at 18h30 on Thursday, 21 June.

In addition to BRA members, the Garden Party is expected to include many guests from the British-Swiss Chamber of Commerce Geneva Chapter, Brits in Business, Executives International, the Royal British Legion, the Royal Air Forces Association, the Royal Over-Seas League, the Victoria British Aid Fund and the Rolls Royce Enthusiasts’ Club.  Now is your chance to join the party too!

The Guest of Honour will be Ambassador Miriam Shearman, Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations, who will formally toast the Queen and the Swiss Federal Parliament. The dress code for the occasion will be `smart casual´ or national dress, and decorations may be worn.

Participants will be greeted with a glass of Pimms before proceeding to the spacious lawns backing on to the school and overlooking the lake and mountains where drinks, finger food and entertainment will be provided.

There is parking for cars but if you prefer to use public transport you can take the “V” line bus from Cornavin Railway Station, which stops outside the school. There is also a railway station at Creux de Genthod, some 10 minutes away. Just walk up Chemin de la Petite-Voie and then turn right along Route de Malagny.

The Association would like to express its grateful thanks to sponsors of the Garden Party, including British Cheese Centre, Happy Dogs, Crown Plaza Seventy Restaurant, Domaine des Biolles, Jim’s British Market, Occitane and Manor Chavannes.
