2019 New Year’s Walk or Cycle Ride with Lunch

New Year’s Walk or Cycle Ride and Lunch: Mios – Thursday 3rd January

Time for a little exercise following the holiday?  A walk or cycle ride followed by lunch has been organised in the beautiful woods around and by the river Eyre in Mios.   The foot paths are
well defined and level, it is not too strenuous and will take approx. 1hour 40 mins.

For those feeling more energetic, or keen to make up for the Christmas excesses, there will be a cycle ride


Meeting

Following a 10am meet at the hotel/restaurant LO’Berge, 27 Avenue du Val de l’Eyre, 33380 MIOS, ( Map )

10.30 coffee and 1pm lunch have been booked

Mios lies about 30 minutes SW of Bordeaux (Rocade), take A63 then A660 towards Arcachon and leave at first exit, signed to Mios. The hotel is in the town on D216, on left hand side just before the bridge over the river.  From the south (Sanguinet) it is on the right just after the bridge.


Cyclists

The cyclists will  join Phil cycling along the ‘green’ Mios to Bazas cycle track AF3V, (an old railway track – now tarmac!).

We would aim to reach Belin Beliet , 16km towards Bazas, and then 16km back, in time to meet the walkers for lunch. We might turn back earlier, depending on our cycling speed.  This route is close to the canoeing route the BBC have taken (Salles to Biganos) in warmer times !


Walkers

Norma B will lead the walkers and meet up with the cyclists for lunch


Lunch

13:00 at LO’Berge, 27 Avenue du Val de l’Eyre, 33380 MIOS ( Map )

Mios lies about 30 minutes SW of Bordeaux (Rocade), take A63 then A660 towards Arcachon and leave at first exit, signed to Mios. The hotel is in the town on D216, on left hand side just before the bridge over the river.  From the south (Sanguinet) it is on the right just after the bridge.


Afternoon

After lunch we could optionally make a shorter cycle excursion along the walkers’ morning route, perhaps to the Bassin- or perhaps relax and recover from the morning’s excursion!

Burns Night 2019


Burns Night at 19h00 on Saturday 26th January in Salle Gérard Philipe in Martignas

This is possibly the most popular event in the BBC calendar and it is extra special this year !

BOOKINGS CLOSE ON MONDAY 7th JANUARY

It’s that time when we celebrate the life of the great Scottish poet, Robert Burns and the BBC always celebrates in the best possible style !
Some would say he was the greatest Scottish poet ever to have lived, and measured by the number of parties held around the world every year to celebrate his anniversary, that could be true. However, it may also have something to do with the whisky, which always flows freely and helps to drown the ‘Haggis Beasty’ !

BOOKINGS FOR THIS EVENT CLOSE ON MONDAY 7th JANUARY

Our Burns Night will have the traditional menu will of smoked salmon, haggis, neeps, tatties and fruit tart together with wine and whisky at the inclusive price of 20€ for adults and 10€ for children. Entertainment will include the pipes, some Burns recitation and the traditional ‘Address to the Haggis’ ( together with its stabbing! ) followed by optional dancing for all.

Every year Burns Night is a BBC favourite but there are disappointments as it is always overbooked due to space limitations. Problem solved this year as we are delighted to be invited to join forces with the Martingas Jumellage Association. We have no space restrictions this year and the event will take place in the excellent events room in Martignas.


Martingas Jumellage

Martingas are twinned with Aboyne which is a historic village on the edge of the Highlands in Aberdeenshire, on the River Dee, midway between the Cairngorms National Park and Aberdeen.


Venue

Salle Gérard Philipe, 14 Avenue de Verdun, 33127 MARTIGNAS-SUR-JALLE ( map )

After dinner there will be dancing to a selection of oldies and goodies and some up to date music into the wee hours of the morning.  All those memories will come flooding back! The energetic can enjoy a boogie; maybe a smooch or two for the romantically inclined and we may be sure that some of the old faithfuls (music that is!) will make an appearance.
