  1. I am not sure what part of the wood you have just crawled out of but firstly the word " pub " was not used it was " Bar" and as I recall there are thousands of bars in France where they serv mainly wine etc. The Club Anglaise I have referred to was formed 30 years ago in Montlucon by tbe French !! Chamber of Commerce especially for French local people to meet for English conversations to improve their knowledge . The membership has been for many years in the region of 50 to 60 mixed French persons and about 8 to 10 English . It was formed as you can see for the French not the Englsh. So before you go ranting off about you personal feelings in public . Check your facts Les Favets

  7. Need a little brush up on your French? whilst enjoying the company of French members who started many years ago to form an English conversation speaking club. Today there are mainly French members but also several. Brits. The benefit is !!! that they in turn help Brits by speaking French with them. In addition to this, there is a fantastic social life. Twice a month they meet ( would you believe it ?) at the London Bar Montlucon l'Allier, in addition to which they have many social gatherings ie; Summer BBQ in a members home. A typical English Christmas lunch. Last year over 50 members participated . They have an English President Anthony who puts together several outings throughout the year. Brits are more then welcome to become members . Regards Les Favets

Anthony who arranges many social functions throughout the year, ie; we have driven up from our home in the Dordogne as past members, to join them for a BBQ in one of the members lovely homes some 40 persons taking part. Each year they also arrange a typical English Christmas lunch in Montlucon and last Christmas some 50 or so members partiicipated. English persons are more then welcome to join them Les Favets

We are looking for what the trade call " A Christmas house party " where the host arranges the 3 to 4 day get together including the festive meals etc., Any one know of anything in France in the Southern region.  It is done in Hotels in the U.K. but seems very difficult to find here in France Regards Les Favets

  15. Thank you all for your comments, one reason we wish to invest in stirling, is because we want to spread our investments some in euros and some in stirling, the euro could well be having trouble in the future so we want to ensure we have a stand by currency.  Have pm one or two of persons with their inputs here, once again : Thank you les favets ( Royston )
