We are getting married on Sunday 27th this year at my parents house near Brigueil le Chantre. We are desperately on the search for a band/musician both for the afternoon and then for the evening reception. We are fairly open to styles and would love to hear from anyone who is either a musician or who knows of one who may be interested in a further conversation!
Wonderful to see a good crowd gathered in Chalus to honour and remember the fallen, an eclectic mix too, of young and old, French predominately with smattering of usual suspects from the Brits.The minutes silence was observed by young and old, and the National Anthem of course was very emotional.I guess at maybe a hundred or more people there, and compare it to a similar service in the UK, from a much larger town the turnout was much smaller, and I wonder why. Apathy, or perhaps people are less well informed or educated as to the reason for Remembrance, seems that in a lot of ways the UK has lost a generation that care.I remember marching through the town in a parade (I was a TA warrior!!) and people staring or laughing, traffic, sounding horns at the hold up, not a good vibe from the townspeople.Maybe they were not too blame for their ignorance, but I felt shame for the veterans who were there to honour their fallen comrades and expect a much better reception.Anyway, well done Chalus, and I expect every town and village in France, great to see respect for the lost lives of young, predominately working class lads.

For the first time we will be spending Christmas and NYE at our holiday home in the Correze. I've been looking online to try to find out if there is anything going on with limited success. Can anyone suggest a good website to look at or anything interesting happening in Correze on NYE?
