Regional Stammtisch

The Southern Stammtisch

The Southern Stammtisch was founded in 2007 and is run by Ann and Roger Blishen. We have about 30 regular members and now meet at the J.D Wetherspoons public house, "The Jack Phillips", address 48 - 56 High Street, Godalming, Surrey, GU7 1DY on the third Saturday of each month at 12 noon. There is ample parking right outside (The Crown Court car park) and we are about a five minute level walk from Godalming railway station. We also arrange regular outings for our Members, and these are well supported.

We have just had our "Kaffee und Kuchen", attended by 27 of our members, sadly no guide dog this year - Ozzy has retired from his duties and gone to a new home.

Please contact the AAS Head office for any queries.

The Chiltern Stammtisch

The Chiltern group Fasching Party was held at the Gate in Bryant Bottom near High Wycombe - which will continue to be the location for the monthly meetings. It was very well attended and everyone either wore a funny hat or came in fancy dress.


The Chiltern Group Stammtisch was started by the late Peter Lance in February 1998. He devised the concept of Society members meeting on a monthly basis to discuss a variety of topics, knowing that they had a common interest in Austria.

His idea was that these lunchtime meetings would operate on an informal basis, so people could attend when they wanted. This is a format that continues today; although there are some special events like its Summer Party and Krampusfest, which are open to friends and family. The Stammtisch also has separate events outside these meetings – for example groups attending local concerts with an Austrian theme.

His role was taken over by Peter Gieler, who continued being the main contact and organiser until he became the Secretary of the Anglo-Austrian Society. Peter Gieler instigated a local newsletter G’schichtern aus dem Chilternland in May 1998, which has also continued on a quarterly basis.
