1st September - 30th September

Hello Everyone

Looking out over the Albères at the moment, 7.30 in the evening, everything is green and peaceful. The sun is setting later now and often casts its warm orange glow over my garden around 8.30. It’s only the beginning of September and there are still visitors enjoying our beautiful area – they want to make the most of the last days of summer.

As the temperatures drop to a comfortable 25, the birds are back, pecking at the cracks in the patio paving. The tramontane can blow all it likes at the moment – I’ll put up with the constant tapping and the flapping so long as I can feel a cool breeze on my face.

Don’t be afraid to go to our Facebook page. It’s perfectly safe! Lots of photos and info. Go on, I dare you…

This is our national website where there are some interesting news items. The CSF Shop will appear soon. Click on this and have a look at our new Christmas cards.

Tombola and raffle prizes for Autumn Ball

We would be very grateful indeed for anything you might have which you think worthy of a Tombola or Raffle prize. Bottles of wine or spirits, unopened presents, anything in good condition really: paintings, ornaments, china or glass, scarves, handkerchiefs, fancy bed linen.

Also BRIC-A-BRAC wanted for a VIDE GRENIER in Maureillas (details below)

Please bring your donations along to any of our Drop Ins or email me and I will try and arrange a pick-up.

Wednesday 20 September, Villa Lafabrègue, Prades, 10.15

Catch up with friends at this splendid villa. It’s in a beautiful area on the edge of the village. Coffee, tea and books and greetings cards and maybe a few cakes.

Thursday 7th September, Walk for Life, Maureillas

This year’s Activity for Life has been cancelled. The Mairie requested that we share the venue for the day with another event of 100 participants. We reluctantly decided that this would not be feasible. We will be back bigger and better next year!

Looking ahead
