Events, Travel and the Dinner Club

Please have a good think about how you will be travelling to Meung next year. It's difficult we know with Christmas looming but we may see flight prices rise in the new year as people plan their Easter holidays. Could you read and respond to the suggestion below by 15th December? We would like to sort out if there is sufficient interest in shared transport from the airport so that people can get their flights booked nice and early.

Your committee met last month and made a good start on planning events for next year. Please have a look in "Dates for your Diary" in this Newsletter. Of course we would welcome any other events organised by the membership.

If you could also read and respond to Pat Swindlehurst's note about the Dinner Club.then that would be great.

Possible help with Travel?

Michel Bret has offered to help with picking up people from an airport and taking them back after the Exchange. I presume this will be a mini-bus / coach. We won't know the cost of this until we have some idea of numbers. But it will be far easier than having to make your own way there and back by public transport from Paris CDG.

So far we have had very few replies from you about how you are travelling to France. Certainly not enough to consider a coach from Lymm. This is understandable as Christmas is now less than 3 weeks away. But, if you think you MIGHT want to take advantage of Michel's offer then please express an interest now. 

As a suggestion Flybe have these flights
15/04 06:45 (Man) -> 09:20 (Paris CDG) 
  -  currently starting at £54 per Adult, later flights cost £50 more 
19/04  16:50 (Paris CDG) -> 17:20 (MAN)
   - currently starting at £118 per Adult  (13:05 flight also poss. but early departure from Meung)

If everyone who wants to use this travel option is happy with these times then there will be another email from Lynn Bryant confirming the arrangements and asking you to go ahead and book. Please don't book the above flights just yet.
Over the last few Exchanges we have all made our own way to France. If you could update us on your current travel plans , for example ... "like the idea of transport from Paris CDG", "will make own way there", "not travelling next year" , or "undecided as yet but (will not/might) be interested in being picked up at the airport" then it will help as gauge interest in the above arrangements. 

Dinner Club

Pat Swindlehurst is taking over the "Dinner Club" rota after she gets back from Australia. So expect a new rota in February 2020.

Whether you are a current member or not then we would like to know who is interested in being part of the dinner club? Don't worry about the name "Dinner Club". If you fancy joining in with your children then also please let us know. There may be enough interest to setup a "Weekend Lunch Club" or something similar. 

If you could reply to this email about the Dinner club then it will help Pat Swindlehurst when she gets back from Australia.
