Event Update and Covid Regulations April 2021

Due to the changes announced at the start of April and therefore the stricter rules, we have had to cancel our walks throughout the month of April. Hopefully we will be able to recommence in May with the walk at the Domaine de Certes.

We still have our virtual activities, the Quiz night each Wednesday, the book club and our virtual evening entertainment this month with comedian and magician Tony Rix.

Our ‘A Novel Idea’ Book Club is reading and reviewing ‘Suite Francaise’ by Irene Memirovsky.  Suite Francaise is the title of a planned sequence of five novels by Irène Némirovsky, a French writer of Ukrainian-Jewish origin.
