Thursday 3 May to Monday 7 May

Fancy a short break to France? The Curry Rivel & District Twinning Association is organising its trip to Chevilly (our twinned town) over the early May Bank Holiday and there are some spare places to be had!
The executive coach leaves Curry Rivel on Thursday 3 May and returns on Monday 7 May. We'll take a ferry from Portsmouth to Caen on the Thursday afternoon, then stay in a reasonably priced hotel for the first night. On the Friday there will be the opportunity to explore the city of Le Mans before arriving in Chevilly early evening. The weekend (Friday evening till Monday morning) will be spent at the homes of our French hosts.
This time our visit will be a special one as it's the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Charter in France and if previous experience is anything to go by, we'll be "right royally entertained". And you don't have to be a member of the Twinning Association nor speak French to join in the fun.
The cost will depend on the number of people travelling and will range from £103 per person (for 40+ participants) to £134 per person (for 30+ participants). To this you should add the cost for the first night in the hotel at £40 per person B&B if sharing a twin or double room, or £71 per person B&B for a single room.
All travellers must have their own passport and be responsible for their own travel insurance.
Sounds interesting? Then please call Harry on 01460 281573 or email harryprice183@btinternet.com soon to ensure your place.
