One thing I really miss about not being in England is the sports I use to participate in, is there anyone around the Nimes region (I would be happy to travel a sensible distance) who might also want a game on a regular basis in any (or all) of these sports?
Has anyone got any info on non toxic anti freeze treatments that can be added to the water and that you can still continue to use as normal. People safe etc. I saw something a couple of weeks ago somehere but have been having serious senior moments as to where it was. Thanks in advance for any help Paul
I am an inconsistent golfer (sometimes gets a par, sometimes gets 9, averages 3 over par per hole) looking for fellow golfers to play once or twice a month, nothing serious just an enjoyable game of golf. I live near Olonzac and love to play at Mazamet. So could meet at the course or share the driving. Thanks

Hi, I'm looking for a gym or sports hall that has badminton courts you can hire out. I've found a place that has them between Trebes and Carcassonne, but that's quite a way from me. So I'm after a place a bit closer to home (Olonzac area). Have tried Lezignan and Olonzac but no joy. Any suggestions gratefully received. pezney.
Hi all In the uk I went to an aerobics class that frankly I both loved and hated at the same time as it was shattering but I felt good for going!. I found a class at our local village and happily went along but i gutted to discover it was very low impact - i'm very unfit but I didnt even break a sweat. I need something more energetic but where all the woman arent a size zero. I live in castelnaudary but would be willing to travel in the limoux/castel/carcassonne area. anyone know of any good classes?
I have a Cornish Cormorant Sailing boat [3.75m oal] and wish to join a sailing club in Aude, Herault or Pyrenees-Orientales. Preferably on the coast but inland water a possibility. I would be pleased to hear of any clubs that forum members know about, or better still, have experience of.
My partner has just bought a boat in France but sadly one week later he has died, I am a bit lost as to what i am supposed to do with all the paperwork that came with the boat. I know he wanted to register it on the small ships register in England. I have an English address to do this from although the boat will be kept in France for the most time. I have my coastal skipper qualifications in England and believe if i register the boat on the small ships register this covers me for coastal sailing in France. I have been given a form at the point of sale (Fiche Plaisance - Immatriculation D'un navire de plaisance) and have the acte de vente d'un navire de plaisance. Do i need to do anything with these forms in France to change ownership or do i go staright to registering it on the small ships register in England.Please help.

Many thanks in advance Claire
Hi everyone, we are looking for something that will suitable for us to rent for a family of 4 , preferably near the coast, it doesnt have to be in the centre of town, rural sounds good too(including 2 teenagers, ) Any suggestions of what we can keep them occupied with for the week?
