"My children and I are experiencing the history we only read about in books in the States."

The Chilterns American Womenís Club is a group of more than 400 women who are citizens of North American countries or wives of citizens of North America countries. Our primary objective is to welcome and assist newcomers and their families to the area of England known as the Chilterns. We promote friendship and cooperation among members, and give financial support to several philanthropic projects.

CAWC was established on July 1, 1987 with the merger of two other local clubs founded in 1950. Now in itís 12th year, CAWC has an expanding membership of more than 400 woman, drawn from members with an extensive network of information and provides the opportunity to make living in the UK a wonderful and rewarding experience.
