Dear Everyone,

What a glorious month February has been, even up here in Caixas the daffodils are out.  Let’s hope March will follow on with more Spring colour, longer days, the clocks changing………..and, if you scroll down past our monthly events, you will see that we have  plenty of dates for your diaries, April is particularly busy!  

5th March –  Drop in to Pablo’s Bar in Céret for a coffee and a chat any time between 10.30am and 12 noon.  No need to stop for long, just pop by!  We will be there with some English books and a warm welcome!

17th March – With thanks to Mel and Fergal at the Café des Artistes, we will be at Laroque for our Book Exchange between 10.30am and 12 noon.   Don’t forget –  buy a drink and choose FREE books!

One of our members, Diana, has very kindly offered to take over the monthly round up of events and news from me.  So DON’T be surprised when her name appears at the foot of the next e-mail!
