Dear Members & Friends,

Summertime is officially here, and we can't wait to sit outside in one of London's lovely parks, enjoying the beautiful weather.

This June edition includes an editorial by Baroness Anne McIntosh of Pickering, the host of the DKUK Annual Summer Reception 2018 at the House of Lords.

The Newsletter also includes a very exciting and packed events calendar, with everything from live football screenings, a dinner where you are taken on a culinary adventure through the Nordics, all the way to a race day in Donnington Park to see the British GT4 series and much, much more!

Enjoy the read.

Kind Regards,

The DKUK-team
