  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

  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 .

  9. 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

  10. No Sue , You have it correct, we are looking for what we believe is known in the catering trade as " A house party " where it is organised for people to book a place to share the events with others, over the Christmas 3 to 4 days.  So still on the look out

  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

  16. Sold one property in France  purchased a new property in another area of France and have some monies left over which we wish to invest in and English bank using their fixed interest rates over 3 years annual payment of interest.  We have contacted several U.K. banks including the one we have used for over 30 years and they all inform us that because we live in France with no U.K. address we are not able to take advantage of their offers.   My question ( as I have put to them all ) is WHY NOT ????  We are English with English passports with English Banks and it is not as if we are looking to borrow monies from them but rather to place a reasonable amount in thier coffers to be able to make bigger intersts from then they are offering.  Seems daft to me.  Does anyone out there have any knowledge as to why they will not accept our monies?

  18. We have sold one property and purchased another in France and are left with some monies we would like to invest on a 3 year fixed rate annual payments of interests and have been viewing various U.K. banks who are offering a little more then here in France but !!  when we approach them to open an account , all the high street banks we have spoken to advise us that because we do not live in the U.K. nor have a U.K. address, we are not able to invest in their offers.  We have two account with U.K. banks but neither of them are able to accept us for their fixxed rte investment facilities.  I can't believe tht they are not prepared to accept our monies, it is not as if we are borrowing from them but offering them additional monies to be able to ue for offering to others at higher rtes then they are offering investers.  Seems daft to me!!! Any simple reason why this is so ?

    p.s. we are English !!!!!!!!!!

  24. Using Google can't trace any camping shops or  stores or infact any caravan sales rooms in the area near Bergerac or in the Dordogne.  When I use Google ie 'Camping shop or store in Dordogne.  all that comes up is camp sites.  Can't believe there are no shops aimed at the camping requirement in the area ( could be an opening there for some bright spark - me ? no too old !! )
