AIWM is an Association for all nationalities and ages to meet and to make friends through social, cultural and fundraising activities. Whether you live full-time or part-time in Malta, you are invited to enjoy a variety of activities and events throughout the month.
At the heart of the Association are the activities that members themselves organise to share common interests. These special interest groups are small, allowing for members to become better acquainted in a more intimate environment.
Each month there are “Monthly Specials,” organised by our Social Committee who accept fresh ideas from all members. Specials have included a private tour of St Paul’s Catacombs, a tour of the Malta Parliament Building, a crash course in drawing skills and a private tour of Manoel Theatre. All ideas are welcome.
We welcome ideas for special interest groups that any member would like to organise.
The Book Club is open to AIWM members who would like to exchange ideas on a variety of books. Our gatherings are on the last Wednesday of every month.
Books to be discussed during coming months include:)
Feb: The Mermaid of Black Conch - Monique Roffey
Mar: The Burning Land by George Alagiah
Apr: The Flame Trees of Thika by Elspeth Huxley
May: Three Daughters of Eve by Elif Shafak
Where: Palazzo Parisio, Naxxar : 1030 – 1200
BON APPETIT LUNCH
Do you have an interest in trying restaurants that serve a country’s national cuisine? This lunch club might be for you! It’s a great way to socialise with our members. Lunches are held on a monthly basis.
The next lunch will be held at Klay in Balluta Bay on Thursday 9 February.
Mahjong is Back!
Whether you would like to learn how to play or have played before, why not join our fun Mahjong Group?
Mahjong is an excellent mental workout, enjoyed by millions of people around the world. It is easy to learn and a well travelled hobby.
Held every Thursday 10.00am-12.30pm at Fortizza Bar & Restaurant in Sliema.
Following our member survey early in 2022, we realised that there were a number of members keen to learn bridge. Hey Presto, we now have a beginners Bridge Club led by a very skilled and experienced teacher. In addition, a social group of bridge players have emerged, playing both in each others homes and online.

WALK & TALK
A large number of members are keen walkers, and let's face it Malta is blessed with a huge variety of beautiful walks - cliffs, Roman Roads, beaches which need exploring.
Walk & Talk suits us perfectly. A chance to exercise and catch up with fellow members.
Held once a month, members can show case their own favourite places
Coffee mornings are the life line of our members. Every month we aim to hold one Member Monthly Social (MMS) per month. Wherever possible, these socials are held at member homes or other interesting venues.
Keep an eye on the newsletter for new dates!
Our first choir practice took place in May. It has been a resounding success with even more members ready to sign up for the start of the Autumn. The choir is managed by an experienced voice coach.
The objective is to make music and enjoy each other’s company. We will not be geared towards public performance, so you can join in without worrying about having to perform in front of an audience. It’s all about getting to know each other a bit better and having fun.
Information on how to join can be found in our newsletter.
Introducing our first 'conversation' class. GERMAN.
Do you speak (some) German and would like to practise or brush up on your language skills in a casual setting or are you a native speaker and are longing for a “Kaffeeklatsch”?
One of our members is offering a monthly German Conversation Group in her home in Attard. She will prepare a topic and members are welcome to suggest topics of interest for future meetings.
Hopefully, the first of our language conversation classes. Hoping for French, Spanish, Italian....
