The bright sunshine which we have been enjoying for the last few days is hopefully a herald of better times to come in the New Year.   Our new sessions begin 6th and 7th of January.   With the rising numbers of Covid cases across France and the Uk however, we must continue to be safety conscious and continue to ‘keep our distance’ and maintain the wearing of masks.

Thursday evening November 18th

As usual, the evening was hosted by Marie, helped this time by her friends Babette and Véronique!…

They spent some very nice holidays in Alsace, and they shared with us their discoveries (cultural and gastronomic…)

If you click on the link below, you can also watch an alsatian dance …


All the participants have enjoyed this lively evening, and especially the wines and the toasts and various cakes prepared by Marie.

We are looking forward to their next holidays!!!…

Up and running again!

Barring a resurgence in the Covid numbers in the Vendee, we are now almost back to normal. Last Thursday a good crowd of Members were able to enjoy an evening devoted to discussing beer in all its’ forms.   Marie is now in the process of organising an excursion for Members to a brewery locally – doubtless involving tastings!

Friday also welcomed 27 Members and friends to our regular quiz morning, with another new Member.   Welcome J J !

Also in prospect is a ‘Soiree Couscous, to be held of Thursday 7th October at La Baritaudiere.   (15 euros each by cheque for Members)    Also planned is  an end of year/early Christmas meal at a venue which we have all previously enjoyed.   So, watch this space and be ready to sign up with Dominique for these events either on Thursday evenings or Friday mornings.

Happy times are here again!

Cette énumération n’a rien de réjouissant mais elle répond lucidement aux problèmes et nous permettra de résister ensemble dans la bonne humeur et l’amitié à cette ambiance particulière. This enumeration is not pleasant, but it is a lucid answer to our problems and will allow us to resist together in good mood and friendship.

Un masque n’empêche pas d’échanger et de rire. A mask does not prevent us from discussing and laughing !!!…
