Champagne, Croquet and Cake (CCC), 2 September 2:30pm - 5:30pm

With the success of the village fête still ringing in our ears, and our limbs recovering from tossing hundreds of crêpes, we’re turning our thoughts to our next event. We’ve decided this year to move one letter up the alphabet from BBB (Bubbly, Boules and Brunch) to CCC (Champagne, Croquet and Cake) on Sunday 2nd September, 2:30pm to 5:30pm. We thought this would be a delightful way to spend an afternoon on the last Sunday of the summer holidays, and we hope you will be able to join us in the Wiltshires’ wonderful garden at Forest Ridge, Paddockhurst Lane, Balcombe RH17 6QZ. A very good price of £7.50 per head to include a glass of champagne, a wide selection of cakes, pastries and eclairs, a cup of tea and free entry to the croquet competition. Children are very welcome and Family tickets are just £20. There will also be a pay bar with excellent French wines on offer as usual, as well as soft drinks. 

Looking further ahead we’re hoping to provide some entertainment in the Victory Hall on 10th November, so please keep the data in your diary. Further details on all our events will be on posters nearer the time and if you’re on our mailing list we will keep you up to date and let you know what’s happening when and how to get tickets. If you would like to be added to our mailing list, please get in touch - you can find contact details in the list of clubs and organisations towards the back of this magazine.

On behalf of the French Association, I wish you a wonderful summer and very much look forward to seeing you on Sunday 2nd September.

Bonnes Vacances,

Max Preston Bell
