Who Are We?

Are you British by birth?

Do you live in or around Boca Raton, Florida?

Do you want to meet up with other British women on a regular basis?

If you answer “yes” to all of these questions, they why don’t you consider joining our Club?

Who Are We?

Our Club started in 1997 when an advertisement, placed in The Union Jack newspaper, attracted 7 people to meet at a local English Tea Room.  It was unanimously agreed that there was a need for a British Social Club in and around Boca Raton.  Now our membership is over 100 and continues to rise!!!

We meet on the first Wednesday of every month in Boca Raton.  The format of our Monthly Meeting is usually dinner, an after dinner speaker or event, socialization and a little Club business. Recent after dinner events have included fashion shows; a local police officer on personal safety issues; an image consultant, who gave us tips on how to dress for various occasions; journalist and photographer, Joyce Ferder, on women in war zone reporting; the Boca Raton Historical Society on Boca’s rich history; the Morikami Museum on the Japanese community that were the reason for the now world-famous garden in Delray; Gumbo Limbo on preserving Boca’s sea turtles; and a presentation on how to help prevent human trafficking in South Florida.  We have also had a members’ talent show; members presenting their favorite holiday designations; and quiz nights.  We have a holiday party, summer party and BWCBR anniversary party each year.

Smaller groups meet throughout the month, participating in such activities as movie night, book groups, card & mah jongg games, play reading, poetry reading, theatre trips, Spanish conversation, curry nights and having lunch every month in various local venues.   We usually have two parties every year.  We celebrate our Anniversary with a special event, open to Members only, in October.  The Club’s Annual General Meeting is held in March.

We encourage all of our Members to play an active roll in “running” our Club.  There are committees you can join and other ways to help the Club.  This is the best way to get to know the other Members and to “get the best” from your Membership.

We pay annual dues which cover the production of our monthly newsletter, a Member’s Only website, party incidentals and any other necessary expenses.

For Club purposes, British is defined as born in the UK or in any territory considered British at the time of the member’s birth or born outside the UK of British parentage and entitled to a British passport at the time of the member’s birth.

As a non-member, you are welcome to attend two of our regular Monthly Meetings and maybe our Curry Night to see how you like us.  After that we hope you will join our Club.
