Visit 2018

The 20th Anniversary visit is now over and hopefully everyone enjoyed the trip.
The journey was subject to what I consider to be an unnecessary delay by the ferry company and this seriously delayed out arrival in St Pryvé.
Everyone remained in good humour which helped to reduce the discomfort.
Les Grenouilles organised the weekend very well and the soirée and vist to Valençay were most enjoyable.

The coach journey home went according to plan and we arrived back at the Village Hall car park by 9pm.

Visit to France

We will be visiting St Pryvé from Friday, 18th until Tuesday 22nd May.

If you are coming please ensure that your passport, EHIC card and Travel Insurance are up to date. The theme for the Saturday evening soirée is Bees and Frogs.

Further details can be found on the Visit 2018 page.

As part of our gift to Les Grenouilles marking the official 20th anniversary, we hope to present a framed photograph of The GBs.
