Good Afternoon Everyone,

We have discussed the ongoing problems of potentially life threatening viruses in France and have decided to cancel the social meeting planned for this coming Tuesday 4th February 2020.

We are most concerned about the ongoing and worsening Coronavirus that is now confirmed in France. There is also a highly contagious Gastric virus more local to us.

We would not like to be responsible for spreading either of these potentially fatal viruses.

Thank you for your support in this urgent matter.

Please relay this message to any members that may not have picked up this email.

Kindest Regards


Rodney Curtis



We can reveal that the Central Brittany Branch raised an incredible €20,004.17 + £917.70 in 2019 for the Poppy Appeal Fund. We were just short of the €20k mark before the last social meeting but did have offers from two lovely people to make up the difference. After the social we found though that we had happily managed to successfully achieve our target thanks to the generosity of the attendees! We would like to say an enormous thank you to everyone and a very happy and healthy New Year to all.

Best wishes and many thanks.

Kate and Rodney Curtis.


NEWSLETTER - January 2020

Good Evening Everyone,

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year, indeed, welcome to a New Decade!

Just a reminder that we WILL be having a social meeting in January: Tuesday 7th January 2020 at 1200hrs.

Whilst we welcome in a New Year and Decade, please spare a thought and prayer for the people and animals in Australia, suffering the devastation of terrible bush fires raging out of control.


From Kate; The 2019 Poppy Appeal now stands at an incredible €19,716.67, a huge thank you for your continued support throughout the year, BUT wouldn’t it be great to reach the magic €20,000 figure, SO if you still have poppy boxes to hand in please could you help by handing them in as soon as possible. I will be raiding my piggy bank too!

Social Tuesday 7th January 2020 1200 for 1230hrs - Au Relais de l’Oust

We will have the Poppy Appeal table, Welfare, Books a quiz and Raffle.

Chinese New Year - The year of the Dog

Basha has booked 30 places for 1200hrs on the 23rd January 2020 at The Lanterne Rouge, Pontivy. Please email Basha if you would like to attend. 

I will see some of you on Tuesday.

Kindest Regards


Rodney Curtis
