Its almost here!! What some of us have eagerly awaited since Easter Monday! ( Well, at least me anyway, I LOVE meeting all you fine people at these events! ) The First Annual Summer Beach Barbecue and Book swap is upon us! Here is the sign-up sheet. This is to indicate what you are bringing to share with everyone else. It can be a side dish, salad, dessert or bread - you decide. It needs to be enough to feed between 16-20 people. I am including this list so we don't get 20 bowls of coleslaw and one of green salad. I'll post first so you can see the format. Kitty- 2 adults, 2 children ( girl 4, girl 6) one docile dog. Staying overnight on site. Side dish : Barbecue Baked Beans, meat and vegetarian varieties. When we have a few pages I will do an update to make it easier to read. Thank you to everyone for your enthusiasm, offers of help and general good neighbourliness (is that a word??) I have had to lay low as I am packing for the (permanent!!) move to France. But, heh, I am back among the living now! I am really looking forward to renewing acquaintances, having a good laugh and enjoying the weekend! And of course, really excited to meeting all of the rest of you! Kind regards, KittyDie dulci fruere ! (unless you have other plans...)

Apparently there's a zoo/wildlife park near La Baule.  Haven't had much luck finding a web page.  Does anyone know it?  Where exactly can I find it and if it's worth a visit. Thanks. Sue

Disappointed we are missing a fete on 8th Aug but see from the BBQ posting that there is another fete on the 15th at Lac de Guerledan.  Anyone got any more info on that, ie. where exactly, time, what is actually happening (understand there will be fireworks), food, drink, dancing etc? Thanks Sue

I love Guingamp anyway, but I especially appreciate les jeudis de Guingamp. Every Thursday afternoon throughout the summer, there's amateur street theatre, followed by a professional performance in the evening. There are some really superb artists and the atmosphere is great. If you have children, you'll find the shows are usually suitable for them at least as much as for adults. Justine

Has anybody been to this activity park ? If so what is it like ? (We went to the one at Elliant last summer and were very disappointed after the excellent Parc des Naudières at Nantes.)   Lagadu

Dan has just arrived to live near Hennebont. He doesn't speak much French at present but would love to get to know some young people about his age - 15 years -. His interests are tennis and playing the guitar.  So if you are keen on tennis or playing the guitar or would like to meet a very pleasant young man, please contact me with your telephone number and I'll ask him to call you. He hopes their internet will be set up very soon, then he can get on to Anglo Info himself.Jill

My daughter and grand daughter, who are both vegetarians will be spending a week in late July early August at our house in Plumeliau near Pontivy. Does anyone know of any vegetarian restuarants in the area or Restaurants that serve a vegetarian menu? Richard
