POPPY APPEAL: Abject apologies to you all, and a very belated Happy New Year, but we were delayed with finalising the Poppy Business after a death in the family, which entailed a long visit to UK.

Now, I can thank you all, and say with your help, we raised 13,300 euros this year for the Poppy Appeal and have already sent £1,265.46 to HQ.

Also, in case you are interested and live not too away, the local Branch of the Royal British Legion are holding a Troc et Puces in Plumeliau near Pontivy on April the 7th. Please do come if you would like to - you would be very welcome!

Thank you all so very much for all your help and please do keep in touch!!

NEWSLETTER - January 2019

Good evening my friends,

A very belated Happy New Year to you all. 

I hope you all had a special Christmas and saw the New Year in, in style.

I like to watch on TV as the New Year arrives in the South Pacific Islands, New Zealand, Australia and working it’s way West. Having Daughters in New Zealand and Australia and having lived in Malaysia, Singapore, Cyprus, Berlin, Celle-Hannover, Dusseldorf and now France and originally London it’s very special to watch these familiar landmarks ‘See in’ the New Year.

I hope this year brings us some certainty regarding our futures whether you live here in France or in the UK.

On a sad note, Rodney lost his Mum on 31st December, our love and support go out to you Rodney, be good to have you back here soon.


Looking at our immediate future, we do need a new Treasurer from 1st July, we will not be permitted to continue without one, it is a key post. Please speak to either Peter or myself if you are interested.
