Over the past year our numbers have dropped from 8 to 4. Normally we are a house group meeting on 2nd & 4th Monday in the month, in the morning.
We talk about things we’ve read, seen or listened to as well as topical news.
At present we are using ZOOM for our meetings.
We’d like more members – so if anyone would like to join us, please contact Jean Stanford via the Group Coordinator
Over the past year our numbers have dropped from 8 to 4. Normally we are a house group meeting weekly on Wednesday mornings. At present we are using ZOOM for our meetings.
We would like 2,even 3 more members. We try to speak French most of the time. We each usually give a short presentation of what we’ve done, seen or read in the preceding week, usually followed by questions and answers. Plus we discuss topical issues. We use French magazine – Bien Dire and Bien Dire Initial. It has many interesting articles, some of which we can listen to by CD. See attached example. We also use an outdated French Experience 2 for grammar etc. We learn from each other – not a teacher, therefore the group is always open to suggestions for things to do.
So if you have some French and would like to join us, please contact Jean Stanford via the Group Coordinator.

The meeting of the Architecture Group due to have been held at 2.15 on Monday 23rd March has been CANCELLED because of the advice on coronavirus. We will hope to reschedule Stephen Carey’s talk on the post-war reconstruction of Plymouth for later in the year.

Walking Group Update
The fieldpaths around Broughton Gifford are very muddy and, with more rain today and tomorrow, the conditions are not going to improve. With this in mind, I have reluctantly decided to cancel this Thursday’s walk which will be re-instated at a later date. If any members pick up this message and have contacts in the group could they please pass the information onto them.
