Coming Up*...

"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, including Banyuls and Collioure.  The next one will be 25 April provisionally at Chez Anne et Didier in Port Vendres (Quai Forgas).  Let us know if you are coming so that we can alert Anne & Didier.

Sunday 15th April Aiguamolls Bird Reserve. - This has been a popular event over the last couple of years, and this is a good time to go. We have been watching migration of storks and cranes, and more recently, black kites and other raptors. Migration is really getting going now. We meet at Port Vendres Station at 08h30 and drive to the Reserve sharing cars. We spend 2 or 3 hours at the reserve (if you don't want to look at birds you can enjoy the walk round and meet up at the end). Then it is off to lunch and maybe buying a bottle of wine or two before returning home. Let us know if you want to come so that we can reserve lunch.

Cinema at Port Vendres - Thursdays at 20.30  

VI Groups - As the association grows, a variety of separate groups representing different activities are emerging. Details in the January newsletter, 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.)

The Vermeille International Summer Exhibition is on 2-8 July. Contact Linda if you are thinking of exhibiting. Full programme here.
