Twinning lunch a success despite rain

Twinning lunch a success despite rain

ABOUT 30 people attended the association’s annual summer lunch on Sunday, July 29.

It was hosted by long-standing club members Peter and Jeanne Stone, of Blandy Road, Henley.

Guests gathered under gazebos for the meal, which was brought by members and shared out. The wine was supplied by the association.

The lunch included quiches, tarts, cold meats, a variety of salads, chocolate puddings and meringues.

Chairman Denis McCoy said: “It was splendid.

“More than 30 members enjoyed a warm afternoon of companionship despite the drizzly weather.”

The association was created in 1973 when Henley linked with Falaise in Normandy to foster friendship between the two communities. In May each year members of the association visit Falaise or their counterparts come to Henley.

Other activities during the year include the screening of French films, talks on French life, pétanque (or boules), competitions and the annual meeting with dinner.

The association’s next event will be a picnic lunch in Wallingford on September 15.
