After four years of great fun times in Floirac, it is time for a change.

This year the Christmas Party will be at Hôtel Vatel, 4 cours du Médoc, 33070 BORDEAUX ( map ), an excellent venue close to the Quai des Marques and its ‘outlet shops’ in the Chartrons, Bordeaux. There is also the benefit of a tram stop very close.

As events organiser, I would like to propose two possible group getaways for 2020 as unfortunately our BBC activities week for this year was not possible to organise.

I am not asking for any definite commitment at this time but just to establish if any members would be interested.

Planning needs to start in order to secure accommodation for these popular tourist areas.


2 or 3 nights staying at the Hotel Obisco in the centre of Hondarribia famous for many Tapas Bars and restaurants. A full day sightseeing and shopping in the beautiful San Sebastián
Charming hotel with excellent breakfast for around 95 Euros per double room


3 nights staying at the Logis Saponine Maison D’Hotes a few minutes drive from the famous Arromanche museum and beaches. A comfortable and friendly guests house with 7 lovely rooms and breakfast included with an option of evening meal and the possibility of a dinner with a presentation by an expert guide on the whole area and history. Cost would be around 90 Euros per night plus museum entrance fees etc. visit to BAYEUX to see the tapestry for those who have not already done so.

Please let me know ( contact details are here ) if you feel you would like to participate in one or both of the above and what dates would suit you better. We could also organise car sharing.

I look forward to seeing many of you at the AGM
