9th and 10th September
Eitorf Surprise Tour to Bouchain (France)….. such a surprise that we don’t even know what it is yet!
8th and 9th December
Visit to Bouchain to attend their Marché de Noel.
This is our main fundraising activity of the year, where we have a stall selling Christmas cakes, marmalade, hot toddies and whisky mac. A real opportunity to meet the locals and be part of the community.
Stay en famille with a group meal on the Saturday evening and enjoy a traditional Christmas market on the Sunday. We also ask if you can help with the stall – it’s great for your French trying to explain what a whisky mac is!!
Pick up 08.00hrs Saturday 9th and return 16.00hrs on Monday 11th December.
£65.00 per person, payable in advance.
This covers return transport costs plus the Eurotunnel crossing and will take you to the centre of Bouchain where we will be met by our pre-arranged host families.
It is customary to offer a small gift to your hosts, but no other payment is required. Money will be required for meals and drinks etc. during travel. As you will be staying en-famille, your accommodation and meals will all be provided by your hosts.
During our stay we may have the opportunity to visit places of local interest, take tours and a meal together in the evening – it all depends on what our French hosts organise for us!
This trip is open to new and existing members of the Society – knowledge of French beneficial, but not required as host families will be arranged according to your fluency. Accompanied children are particularly welcome and encouraged; host families are selected where there are children of similar ages.
If this trip interests you, but you are unsure about staying with another family, please ask for an existing member of the Society to contact you who can discuss their own personal experiences.
