Anglo-French ZOOM Session  

  6pm (UK) every Wednesday commencing 10th June  

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 recent virtual Soirée, which took place in lieu of our cancelled visit to Oignies, several people have expressed an interest in further group sessions, particularly with regard to improving their language skills in French/English. We plan to hold the first of these sessions on 10th June. The chat should last about an hour, with the first half based in French and the second half in English. Nothing too formal, let's see how it goes!

If you would like to join in, please let us know via friendsofoignies@gmail.com. The Zoom parameters for the meeting are exactly the same as we used for the Soirée. Please mention in your email if you need a reminder.

  Twinning Weekend 2021  

Unfortunately due to the recent health crisis we have had to cancel this year's planned Twinning Visit to Oignies in May. Les Amis de Buxton have kindly asked us to visit in 2021 instead. As financial commitments had already been made by les Amis with regard to this year's cancelled visit, postponing the event to next year will mean that these costs, and organisational effort, will not go to waste. Buxton will therefore host les Oigninois in 2023, continuing with the tradition of reciprocal visits in alternate years thereafter.

As soon as the dates have been agreed for next year's visit to Oignies we will post them here...
