French soiree

Members of the Curry Rivel & District Twinning Association enjoyed a fabulous French meal in the Village Hall on Friday 23 February. The event was organised to celebrate a special milestone in its history — 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the Twinning with Chevilly, near Orléans. Over the years, friends from our twinned town have travelled to stay in and around our village and Curry Rivel people have in turn been welcomed into their homes.

With tables decorated in red, white and blue, around 45 people appreciated a traditional French meal of pâté, coq au vin with green salad and French bread followed by tarte aux pommes with cream. Needless to say, both red and white French wines helped "twinners" enjoy the event still further. During the course of the evening participants changed seats in order to catch up with old friends or get to know others.

It wasn't just an evening of food and drink, though. Background music with songs by famous French singers such as Michel Sardou, Françoise Hardy, Charles Trenet and Johnny Hallyday was also played. Furthermore, a short quiz on general knowledge of France and French culture had been organised and several French songs were sung. Together with a raffle, the evening helped raise important funds. Another successful event for the Twinning Association!
