UPCOMING EVENTS

  FoO Asociation AGM and Quiz Night  

 Saturday 8 October  

7:30pm, at the Bath Road Church Centre, Buxton. SK176HJ

 

With the last couple of AGMs being held over Zoom, we can at last get back to the usual format. The AGM is principally a social event for members to get together for a drink and a chat, with a quiz for added entertainment. The official AGM business only takes a few minutes. It would be great to see as many members as possible, so please get along if you can. If you could let us know that you’re coming, it would be good to have an idea of likely numbers in advance.​

  • Welcome drink

  • Cheese, baguettes and snacks

  • Quiz with a 'fabulous' prize for the winners

  • Organise your team of around four people

Tickets £5.00

Bring your own bottle (if you wish) for the quiz.

  Visit to Buxton 2023  

  21 - 25 April

More details on the programme of events over the weekend will follow in due course.

 

  Anglo-French ZOOM Sessions  

  6pm (UK) every Wednesday  

The Zoom sessions are currently paused for a summer break. We hope to restart in September

A chance to brush up on your French and have a chat with some of our Amis from Oignies via ZOOM.

 

Following on from the first virtual Soirée, which took place in lieu of our cancelled visit to Oignies in 2020, several people expressed an interest in further group sessions on ZOOM, particularly with regard to improving their language skills in French/English. We started holding these these meet-ups in June and they have been great fun with up to a dozen members joining in weekly from both sides of la Manche. The format is fairly ad hoc, with a mixture of English and French spoken in a lively informal atmosphere. The duration tends to vary depending on the numbers, with people free to join and leave à volonté.

If you would like to join in, please let us know via friendsofoignies@gmail.com and we'll send you details.
