On Wednesday 3rd April, Les Francophile de Tickhill shall be entertained by the Yorkshire plants woman, Sarah Hopps, who will give an illustrated talk on ‘The Gardens of France’. As well as running her own nursery, Sarah leads guided tours to gardens abroad. She will also set up a stall of her own spring produce, so come prepared to purchase beautiful plants!
Just before this talk, they shall hold a brief AGM (brought forward from May), in order to elect a new Treasurer and Secretary and to re-elect a Chairperson and Vice-Chair. Nominations for these posts would be appreciated.
Then on 1st May, to celebrate May Day, the group shall be holding ‘Un Bal Champêtre’. Traditional French folk dances will be led by Peter Barnard, accompanied by the folk band Lys St George from the Isle of Axholme.
They meet at the Parish Room, Tickhill DN11 9HZ at 7.30pm on the first Wednesday of each month. Visitors are welcome at a charge of £3.00. Refreshments are provided. For further details contact Jan Murray on 07463 007789.
