letter to members - Play and Learn

It's almost spring


Franqueville St Pierre, 01 Mar 2017


Dear friends, parents, and students of Play and Learn,

< cette page contenant les dernières nouvelles est plus particulièrement à l'intention de nos membres actuels et anciens >

Coach trip to Jersey - 10 June

This summer, we propose a coach trip to Jersey on Saturday 10 June 2017.
This trip is dependent on at least 45 people signing up for the trip, in order to fill the coach properly and keep costs reasonable. We hope many of our members will be able to come, with partners/spouses, children, or parents - the lists are in Play and Learn for you to sign up.
The maximum price will be 83 € per person (this cost will be reduced if we have 50 or more people). To sign up you must give a deposit (chèque de caution) of 40€ per person.
Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
You may bring your invited guests if they become members of Play and Learn.
You can see photos and trip reports of our previous trips to Jersey in 2015 (click) and in 2012 (click)

We will hold a theatre workshop for teenagers (collégiens et lycéens) during the week from 10 to 14 April, between 10.00 and 15.00. Cost will be 200 € for the five days.

We are very pleased that Micheline has agreed to become our Treasurer, allowing Delphine to 'retire' to look after her many other responsabilities.
We thanked Delphine for several years of faithful service as Treasurer, and gave her some presents when we held a 'handover meeting' with both Delphine and Micheline present. You can see a short report and photos here >> click.

We have settled down to our weekly and monthly pattern, with Anne-Marie Pugh, Fiona Bell, Nick Broad (Nick1), Nick Pryor (Nick2), and Joel Rickards teaching as last term.
