Boume End Welcomes French friends in May.
But first, what happened to the AGM and supper? Like so many other projects of the
first weekend of March, our plans slithered to a halt in the snow. By the time you read this, however, they will have happened a fortnight later, on Friday March 16. More of this next time.
We confidently expect better weather on May 17 to 21, when about 30 of our friends
from Octeville sur Mer arrive in the village for a long Weekend. We’ll do our best to keep the coach out of your way (the drivers do an amazing job), but please be patient and give them a friendly wave.
Our local traders do us proud with specially-decorated shop windows, too. You don’t have to host or speak French, but as a member (£5 individual, £10 family) you could join in the activities.
There will be a welcoming reception (members free), a full day excursion (£9/£15)
to Wallingford and Basildon Park (NT) with cream tea, a barn dance (£5) and a closing
dinner (£15).
