Welcome to the Bordeaux British Community website. During this period of lock-downs and restrictions, we are continuing our activities albeit still subject to those rules, regulations and recommendations from the French Government.
The committee have discussed the idea of more interest group activities, such as walking groups, book clubs and cookery groups/recipe shares. Walking groups and virtual activities are now in our events calendar as a way of keeping us all in touch.
We welcome ideas and recommendations for future events and activities. Please contact one of the committee to share your ideas.

What Goes Up Might Come Down 19:00, Friday 29th January, 2021
This ZOOM presentation of just under one hour is a humourous after dinner speech performed by David Gunson to the Solihull Round Table in 1981. It recounts his experiences in flying and air-traffic control. Some of you may already have heard it, but it is also worth a repeat listening. In order to enhance your listening experience, Gary has created a video with images to support the speech and will take you back to 1981 by recalling the events of that year.
Please come along and have a good laugh together. You may register your interest HERE on HelloAsso at no cost or send an email to Gary using the email email@example.com In this way, you will receive a ZOOM invitation in advance allowing you access.
Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible.
