"Last Wednesday Apèro" - at 18.00 to 19.30 on the last Wednesday of each month. An informal chat and a drink at a different venue each time.
29 January. The 7 Grill on the quai de la Republique has been closed for several weeks following serious flooding. Renovations are now nearly complete and Joy and Eric hope all will be finished to welcome us at the end of the month. This will be confirmed by email.
The Annual General Meeting of the Association will take place on Wednesday 15 January 2020 at 18.00 h at the "Clubhouse" Stade de Port Vendres
Espolla Olive Oil Festival - Sunday 19th January all day. Music, food and lots of stands, human pyramids etc etc. A good day out if the sun is still shining. Let us know if you need a lift to get there, or if you are willing to offer places in your car.
VO films at Vauban cinema, Port-Vendres - No details of films this month are yet available.
Recipe Book - featuring favourite recipes from our members, the booklet is on sale now. We have ordered more of our excellent Recipe Books, having sold all the first 100,
and they have just arrived, so get your orders to us as soon as you can.
VI Groups - As the association grows, a variety of separate groups
representing different activities are emerging, so if you are keen on any of the groups, let us know.
Russian: The small group of Russian speakers meets in Port Vendres on Fridays at 1500 for conversation and coffee when Tanya is here. Contact Linda for details.
Spanish: Carol Fraine has offered to lead a Spanish conversation group on Thursday afternoons if you want to go along. Again, contact Linda for details of venue. (Beginners level, but more advanced also possible.)
English: I'm sorry not to have made more progress here. The idea is to meet for an hour or so for a chance for conversation practice. I shall be sending out a short podcast in the coming days to give a theme to get us started. This is not a beginners' group, but a chance to polish up language skills that may be a little rusty.
Bird Watching: I send out occasional information to those who are interested in the birds of this area. If you would like to receive these emails, let me know.
