The Association of Estonians in Great Britain held their inaugural meeting in November 1947. The first Chairman of the association was Jaak Taul. The Association of Estonians in Great Britain acts as a central coordinating committee, trying to keep alive the culture and language of Estonia in Great Britain, both among the older generation who came there as refugees after the World War II, and among the later arrivals.
