Happy New Year 2018



As the dates before Christmas were taken we decided to hold a 12th night party.
We had lots of sign ups & about 30 people attended (some had been prevented because of a nasty virus). There was a wonderful spread of delicious food (Foal members are excellent cooks) . Kath Claringbull organised a singalong to the carol « The 12th night of Christmas » which was quite à propos. Then our friend Phil Claringbull put on his Father Christmas hat & drew the raffle prizes which were numerous again this year. I actually took quite a lot of photos but my camera played up so I only have two, of the spread. This was taken before all the food had arrived by which time the table was almost too small to hold it all.

Our famous literary quiz will take place on Friday 2nd February at l’Espace Martin Luther King 27 Bvd Louis Blanc  Montpellier. Let’s hope we won’t have  the same misadventure as last year when we arrived at the venue to set things up to find it closed (we had not been warned). Luckily there is another venue not too far away & thanks to the brilliant work of our board  members we were able to hold the quiz there.


Doors open at 5.45pm so that you have time to get a drink in hand before the 6.15 start. You will be given a playing card which will indicate which team to join. After the quiz we will have time to socialise. Foal provides the drinks & nibbles & all we ask of you is a small contribution of 5 euros per person which you put in an envelope & pop into the donation box. We look forward to seeing you all then.
