We are actively seeking new members to host and welcome French families to the village in 2017.
Established in 1995, we have 35 members of all ages, including families with children and we would very much welcome new members to support the continuing growth of this popular association.
We take it in turns to host, and on 25 to 28 May 2017, Barby will again be organising a weekend of events to celebrate their visit.
We have an annual programme of fund raising events which include a pudding evening, wine tasting, fashion show, barbecue and Burns Night in January
Our bi-annual trip to France, sees us staying at a Vulaines-sur-Seine, a small village located five miles from Fountainbleau, south east of Paris. Travelling independently or as part of an organised coach trip, we spend the weekend with our French hosts visiting chateaus, vineyards and taking a trip on the River Seine.
You do not need to speak French, just have warm and inviting home to accommodate and feed a French family for the weekend. Hosts bear their costs of the weekend which is reciprocated by the French when we visit Vulaines.
This is an exciting opportunity to form new friendships and be part of an active and vibrant fun organisation.
The annual membership cost for families is £20 and for individual members is £10.
If you are interested or need any more information, please contact Sally or David.
