If any accomplished or aspiring artist wants to help me stretch a large canvas, I could do with the help. Usually I do them myself but this a large one and it's a bit unwieldy for someone like myself, who is physically disabled. Shouldn't take too long, coffee, tea , biscuits supplied :-) I live near Secondigny, the postcode is 79130.

Hi, I am about to start back into fly fishing again. I have my carte de peche for all of France. I prefer rivers to lakes. Do any of you have advice on where to go for my first few sorties that are easily accessible. My neighbour, who has only just started to learn the art, will be coming along with me so some space to allow for wayward casting would be helpful too. We live on the borders between Vienne, Haut-Vienne and Indre.Thanks in advance.

Hi,  I will be in France for the summer (near Cognac) and looking for somewhere for my 15 year old daughter to climb. I know most of the towns have indoor walls but they seem to be closed over the holidays.  She has a trial for a competition squad in September and is really upset that she can't climb over the summer.  So does anyone know either an indoor or outdoor facility where she can practice?  Or maybe you climb and she can join you occasionally?  She speaks fluent French so can join in with a French group.

Is there anyone on here that rock climbs? I used to climb quite regularly when in the UK but haven't touched stone for the last ten years or so. I would like to get back into it. I know there is a crag at Angouleme and I think one near Poitiers. I have a rack, ropes and harness. Keen to hear from anyone.

has anyone got any experience of setting up a remote controller? I could do with some help adding extra units to it.

Will be in our caravan soon exploring the Dordogne.Would like a campsite, with toilets, showers, electric hook up by a river or lake where we can go swimming. Some shade would be good, two adults and a dog.

Hi All,I hope this reaches everyone who has expressed interest in playingwalking football and just in case can you pass this new development on to any potential interested party.I have been in touch with the Mairie at Aulnay, who put me in touch with the football club in the town, as the five-a-side football pitch that I was interested in belongs to them.There are other groups that use the facility but not many and we would be welcome to use the pitch at no cost! We would have to individually pay something to make sure we are insured and that US d'Aulnay don't become liable for any injuries we may receive!So, I propose to finalise everything with them in the New Year and tostart playing shortly afterwards! So moderation at Christmas please and let’s play in the New Year.RegardsTed Sellwood

Hi, I am arriving on Friday and wanted to know if there is a suitable watering hole that is likely to be showing the Wasps v Exeter Chiefs rugby game on Saturday . Somewhere in the Sauzé-Vaussais /Chef Boutonne/ Ruffec area. Can't possibly miss it and the wife would be disappointed if I refuse to come out. Cheers
