Does anyone know of activities for children aged about 10 in the Huelgoat area? We are thinking of relocating next year and have just bought a small bungalow in this area. Also are there many English children at the local school? Although I would like my daughter to integrate with French children, it can be a strain talking continual French when she is so new at it. I thought if she knew there were others in the local area who spoke the same language it may make her feel more at ease with such a significant life change.

Please can anyone help me find Brownies/Jeanette in the Guemene are.  I looked on the various sites on a previous link before I came out, but had no luck thinking that the Mairie would be able to help me with out of school activities.....!?!  The two ladies looked at me as if I was talking nonsense when I asked about Jeanette, and had no idea what I was on about;they were even more puzzlzd when Brownies and Guides came up in conversation.  I know I am English, but my French is pretty good.  I do not mind driving my daughter (who is 8 years old) to activities within a reasonable radius of home.  Has any one got any ideas on this subject. I am not on the internet at home yet, so do not know when I will next check emails etc, so I will thank everyone who replies in advance as I would not like to think that I was being rude. prachy

Hello all Just a quick message to say that there will be an "English" get together in our local bar on Mon 30th Aug - kind of a "Bank Holiday" celebration. Before anyone worries about it being out of order having an English night, the bar owners are French and they do loads of things for all the local clientele most of whom are also French - we all thought it would be a good thing for a quiet Monday evening before autumn sets in. So, all English welcome - 8.30pm at La Hunaudaye Bar, Pledeliac - about 10 mins from Jugon Les Lacs and Lamballe. The bar is in the centre  of the village, diagonally opposite the church. Look forward to seeing you, if anyone needs more details feel free to mail me direct Han PS First come first served for the Pork Scratchings!

After replying to one of the notices below I realised that I did not inform everyone that any lady or girl can join in the fun whilst I am over in Brittany. It would be a great way for me to get to know others in the area. My classes are free of charge however if we need to hire a hall or something then a contribution to the hall fees would be welcome. Be aware that we do have a good laugh

I went to this shop yesterday, which is in Avranches, south Manche. Useful for anyone living in Ille et Vilaine if you are after foreign foods which you can't find in a French supermarket. The prices are very good too, i.e. 85c for Heinz Beans, as opposed to 1.80E in Hyper U. The lady who owns/runs it is an enterprising French lady who gets Asian stuff from a wholesaler in Paris and goes to England occasionally to pick up the English stuff. If there is any interest, I will give out the address, phone no. opening times and tell you more of the interesting food items for sale.

My son is 13 and is an avid guitarist. He's been playing since early this year and would love to get together with other like minded people for jam sessions. He plays a range of music from Blues to Rock and especially loves "Green Day". If there are any other kids out there who would be interested in forming a group he would love to hear from you plus anyone else who wouldn't mind helping him with his playing and learning. We are more than willing to pay for lessons if anyone would be interested in that too. He plays by the tab method rather than reading music, if that makes a difference. We are in 22, La Roche Derrien but are willing to take him wherever.   Thanks for all your help in advance Jacqui

Hello to everyone under 40.   I have no disrespect for people near retiring-age.   Hopefully I will be getting there some time.   However, I wander if there are some people under 40’s, too.  And I would like to meet them! Perhaps for a BBQ in my garden?!   I am looking forward to your replies.

This Sunday there is an event called "Braderie" in Dinard. Apparently it's a massive car boot sale which practically tales over the whole of the town.My Breton neighbour has a pitch there evry year and says it is really busy so anyone wanting a trip to Dinard but not a car boot might be better staying away.

Hi Everyone- Just thought I would let you know we ate at a really nice restaurant in Pluvigner yesterday called Le Croix Blanc - both of the owners speak English fluently (the husband is from Sri Lanka and the mother is French), and the meal was absolutely delicious, though a bit pricey.  They do a mix of traditional Breton/French foods with some Sri Lankan plates as well. I think they normally have lunch specials, and they also run a small hotel above the restaurant if anyone is looking for housing for family/friends. Bon Appetit, Samantha
