Boume End Welcomes French friends
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
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
to Wallingford and Basildon Park (NT) with cream tea, a barn dance (£5)
and a closing
