Welwyn Anglo-French Twinning – Forthcoming Events

2017 Events

Friday 14th July

Bastille Day Bash

We will be celebrating this historic French event in style this year with a super summer garden party at Liane & Barry’s. Please contact Graham as soon as possible for further details.

Sunday 23rd July

Hertfordshire Town Twinning Boules Challenge

Hosted by Letchworth at the Orange Tree in Baldock. 12 noon.

Flushed with success in winning last year’s Challenge we need to be ready to defend the title and start practising in earnest. Although the Station Pub in Knebworth is closed we understand that it is still possible to unofficially use the boules pistes so we will organise sessions there asap. Everyone is welcome to come, even if you have never played boules, and we will select our two teams on the basis of attendance and merit. If you would like to join in please contact Nigel Jeffery nigel.jeffery@welwyntwinning.org.

Next Year’s Committee and Possible Events

As the Association’s year is coming to an end we have started planning in earnest for next year. Please let us know if there are any events you would like us to consider arranging. We also need more Committee members so why not give it a go? Please contact Nigel (nigel.jeffery@welwyntwinning.org if you may be interested.
