In order to spread the French language expertise which exists within the Twinning Association, the Executive Committee have arranged, as from January 2020, a series of French classes for GCSE students as per the information below:
Just a reminder that the next French Conversation Session will take place next week on
Wednesday 6 November 2019
between 10.30 and 12 noon
in the Coffee Shop in Brentwood Library
£1 per head in order to defray the costs of hiring the library space.
Coffee is available from the counter at a modest charge.
All are welcome, whether or not you are a member of the Association and whatever the level of your French. French speakers (and dictionaries!) will be on hand to help you.
We look forward to seeing you there!
For more information, please contact Judy Ripley by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Calling all sleuths.
In case you haven’t yet booked, just a brief reminder about our next event, the Murder Mystery evening. Don’t miss out!
We are still short of a couple of people to take roles in this, and would also welcome offers of a lemon drizzle cake or two.
Let’s be hearing from you.
Welcome to the Brentwood/Montbazon Town Twinning Association!
Scroll down for the latest information posts and feel free to browse through the site using the tags in the main menu above.
We hope that you enjoy your visit .
After a long period of inactivity, the Brentwood/Montbazon Town Twinning site is back and active. But there’s still a lot of clearing up to do but this will happen over a period of time.
We want to know from you, please:
- any comments you have about the site, good or bad
- what you want to see on the site
- anything else relevant to Town Twinning.
As we seek to make the French Twinning more visible across the borough, the site will become a prime method of communication.
Please help us. Thank you.
Apologies for the lack of updates on this website. We are in the process of transferring its management to another member of the Town Twinning, but we’ll be back very soon with fresh news.
Our friends from Montbazon are visiting us 16th to 21st August, and we’re already working on our programme from the Autumn.
A coffee morning in September, a pie & music evening in October, a pre-festive event in December.
À très bientôt !
Our next (informal) conversation session will be on Thursday 6th April at the Dairyman in Brentwood High Street, 10.30 – midday. See you there!
