Bonsoir Stan

Numbers vary from half a dozen to a dozen each month. Ages range from recent graduates to those who've taken retirement and are enjoying a new lease of life, though the average age is somewhat skewed towards the latter

Once more unto the pub, mes amis - here is your monthly reminder that Marple French Group will be meeting tonight for a social chat in the Ringers at 8pm. Sadly, there won't be a meeting in August as many of the regulars will be en vacances!

In a break fro the norm, I've remembered a couple of days in advance to log on and remind people of the forthcoming meeting - two days hence, 8pm Wednesday at the Ring o'Bells

You can follow (interact with) the Marple French Twitter account here, if you are that way inclined. https://twitter.com/marplefrench

A reminder that this month's evening meeting is this Wednesday, 30th November - 8pm in the Ring o'Bells. All welcome


I must apologise, I've just realised I'm double booked so I may be a little late arriving - I will endeavour to change the conflicting appointment!


A bientôt!

As a reminder also, Marple Exploring The Arts will be showing a french film the following evening, Thursday October 27th

Quote
Meetings are normally held fortnightly on Thursdays at 7.30pm at the Marple United Reformed Church, Hibbert Lane, Marple, SK6 7NN
Non Members welcome: £6 per meeting.
All refreshments are included.

October 27th
Film night: Le Havre (2011, PG, 1hr 33 min, comedy drama, French with English subtitles)
In this warm-hearted portrait of the French harbour city that gives the film its name, fate throws a young African refugee into the path of a well-spoken bohemian who works as a shoeshiner. The director’s deadpan wit hits a graceful note with Le Havre, a comedy/drama that's sweet, sad, and uplifting in equal measure.
