I need help from someone who is interested in fine-art to varnish/re-varnish my paintings, some are quite large and as I'm disabled this is hard for me to do alone. But aside from that it would be nice to meet someone new, an artist or somebody interested in fine-art. I can offer in return, information on oil painting techniques, especially painting without solvents, glazing, use of chalk etc. I could pay for help if necessary. Don't hesitate to contact me for more information.

I need help to varnish some large oil paintings. I'm an experienced painter but I'm physically disabled and lack the mobility to move them into a good position for varnishing, also it is somewhat tiring work and I'm old and decrepit. I use materials and techniques from the renaissance and so I can exchange information and knowledge for help. So if someone with some artistic talent and patience is up for helping, please get in touch.

My husband and I are thinking of buying a property in Poitou-Charentes region and are trying to find out if there are any martial arts clubs? Of particular interest is JKD Kali. Having searched online there seems little in the area and we have only found clubs in Bordeaux. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

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)

Researching for a friend. Does anybody know anything about panning for gold in France please? Particularly with regard to best locations and regulations, if any.

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
