On Wednesday 7th March at 7.30pm, Les Francophiles de Tickhill shall welcome a local ‘aeronut’, Peter Storey, who will give an illustrated talk on René Fournier, the aircraft designer. This Frenchman, now in his nineties, has spent a lifetime designing and building light aircraft, classed as motor gliders, because of their large wingspan.
The following month, on Wednesday 4th April, the group shall hear from another local, Peter Olding, on the topic of ‘Walking the Santiago de Compostelle Route’. Several paths for this pilgrimage run through France, from Issoudun, Vézelay, and Lyon, to name but a few, most of them passing through the Massif Central. Come and see if you recognise any of the places en route.
Meetings take place at the Parish Room, Tickhill DN11 9HZ, on the first Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm. Refreshments are provided afterwards, with a chance to socialise and converse in French. You can enrol now at a reduced fee or come as a visitor at a charge of £3.00. Further details are available from Jan Murray on 07463 007789.
