We are planning on moving to the Charente this year, as soon as our house is sold, and are wondering ...1) If there are any soul discos in the area, and 2) if not, how much interest would there be if I started one (once lockdown is out of the way)

Can anyone tell me if there is anywhere near Sauze Vaussais that provides English Speaking pony riding lessons for children. We are over for the summer and thought this would be an ideal opportunity  for my son to learn. I have seen one advertised at Saint Macoux but have been unable to contact them so not sure if they are still operating. Thanks in advance.

Do you want to improve your French language skills?            Disappointed (as I am) in my own progress after several years in France I wondered if there was an individual who would help guide/mentor a small group of serious learners.   So far that group thought is in my head but I have talked to and know of one or two others interested if something serious and focused were to be made to happen.    I have several learning books, including GCSE level, and am not a complete beginner so a possibility is that individual members similarly able may role-play with learning suggestions.    We are in the Ruffec area. I have listed this in sport and leisure as the only appropriate category.

A new Walking Football team will be starting in Aubeterre soon. It'll be run by a Walking Football Association qualified Tournament Referee and all skill levels are welcome. It's a great way to get back into football, up fitness levels and enjoy some banter with good company. We'll also have the challenge of playing against other sides and tournaments when we're ready. If you're interested please email me at starr.keith@talk21.com

Hi, Can anybody shed light on the procedure for disabled parking at Stade Rochelais please. Our first visit to the ground was a couple of weeks ago, on arrival I asked one of the stewards if there was disabled parking available and was told yes, but he then produced a list of names and asked if we were on it - sadly we weren't but he allowed us to park anyway ( what a lovely man!!) and I assumed that when you purchase match tickets you also have to reserve a disabled parking space.  However, I can't find any way of doing this on the official site and have sent an email asking for help but haven't had a reply. We're going to La Rochelle/Harlequins match on 21st Jan and I'd like to organise parking asap - does anybody have experience of this please?Many thanks

Does anyone know of a day ticket fishing lake that is open in December? Looking for a lake, preferably for coarse / silver fish rather than carp that is within one hour from Ruffec. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
