Banyuls Fete des Vendanges. - Sunday 14th October
This is a huge festival on the beach at Banyuls, with barbecues, music, degustation of local wines etc. Things get under way at about 11h00 and continue all day. It is not too late to book your place on the boat leaving PV at 11am. You will find us on the beach in the area in front of the Mairie. Look for the pale blue Vermeille International flag. If you are joining us on the beach, whether by boat or not, we will provide mugs and plates, bread, green salad, aperos and wine. You will need to bring what you want to cook on the BBQ and something to share, sweet or savoury, or cheese, and cutlery. There will be a 10€ fee which includes a contribution to the Association. Bring your kit if you want to swim. Those not eating with us are welcome to pop by during the day.
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.)
