Newsletter & Future Events


A belated thanks to all of you who supported our last BBQ in July 2019. Despite looking a little doubtful the weather was kind to us, resulting in an excellent evening of food, wine and chat. The event was a sell-out and it was nice to see some new faces amongst our participants.


After what seemed a long lay-off, our wine and cheese quiz in October 2019 in the Harrold Centre proved very popular. As we'd previously run these, we continued with the emphasis of being an evening of fun, eliminating the need to worry about not being a wine (or cheese) expert. We sampled a range of whites and reds from around the world, accompanied by four different European cheeses. 


In January 2020 we held our annual Burns Brunch, which again was well attended. Due to the Coronavirus situation we unfortunately then had to cancel a number of our regular events. As things are hopefully now getting back to normal we are in the process of starting to plan a few events.


We were lucky to have good weather for our shortened trip to Ste Pazanne in late May this year. Our hosts were wonderful as usual, treating us to a trip to Samur, which included a tour of the town, a visit to the chateaux and a distillery tour. We were given an excellent lunch in a restaurant sited within a troglodyte cave. The following day we were taken to the seaside at Pornic, having a seafood lunch and a gentle walk along the seafront.


Being twinned with Ste-Pazanne since 1995 the majority of our committee have been involved since day one. While not quite past our ‘sell by date’ we are always looking for fresh members to continue the partnership with Ste-Pazanne. Recently a couple of our ‘mature’ members with over 20 years service on our Committee have had to step down. We are now looking to boost membership on the Committee to ensure the longevity of the Twinning Association. The tasks aren't too onerous! Please come along the the village Open Day (see details below) for an informal chat. 


If you’d like more information please have a look through our website or please feel free to contact one of our committee who are always happy to give you an insight into what we’re about. See our 'contact' page for details.
