Bourne End (Bucks) Twinning Association
Begun in 2003, BEBTA links Bourne End with the small town of Octeville sur mer, near Le Havre in Normandy. It promotes links and friendships between our two towns, with alternating yearly exchange visits. It’s a great way to explore another culture, and to meet and make friends within our own community.
In December our choir entertained the residents of Alfred Court with a Christmas programme of songs, readings & carols. New singers are always welcome! Then in early January around fifty of us rounded off the festive season with “galettes” and traditional customs in the French style.
By the time you read this, we may be in the freezing worst of winter; but there will be much to look forward to: AGM & supper, excursion, quiz, Visit 2019 and more – lots of fun!
We shall be reviewing the BEBTA year at our Annual General Meeting on Saturday 2nd March, 7pm for 7.30pm start at Dunstan’s Church Hall, SL8 5AR. Do stay on for a friendly two-course supper, £10 per person (£11 non-members). Supper bookings by Friday 22nd February, please, to BEBTA Treasurer, 95 Chalklands, Bourne End, Bucks., SL8 5TL.
Later in the year we expect to run an excursion, as well as our popular Quiz Night.
Visit 2019 to Octeville will be Thursday 12th – Monday 16th September (pay travel cost only) and includes the Fête de la Libération celebrations in Octeville. More details shortly.
Annual membership (£5 single, £10 family) will introduce you to lots of new local friends; and maybe we shall have the pleasure of your company on the coach to Octeville – not to be missed!
