We will continue when we can

Many of you will understand that the editor, me ... is busy caring for a very sick sub editor Malcolm.
For nearly 5 months Malc has spent weeks in hospital with a very aggressive lymphoma and then a stroke to add to it.
We hope when all is sorted to continue with news and views and happenings in our area.
One thing we know now is although the health service here is under pressure the standard of care Malc is receiving is second to none.
Hope you have all had a great summer and after a week of rain looking forward to sunny skies before long.

Worth going to, tonight

After tonight's spectacular rehearsal, I can thoroughly recommend this concert Tuesday 22nd October at 8pm at St Antonin Noble Val church.
Choeur du Noble Val started last December and is ready tomorrow to present an eclectic programme of music "AVE VERUM", stemming from late 1400s to 1940s.
Please do come along to the church at St Antonin Noble Val, tomorrow (or perhaps today by the time you read this) at 8pm.
The concert is in association with Les Amis de l'Orgue Puget de St Antonin Noble Val. All your generous donations go to fund the restoration of the church Puget organ.”

Festilitt at Parisot

- the Parisot literary festival
18, 19 & 20  October 2019
Last minute details for the weekend  

One week to go!  A number of things have changed since last year, so here are a few last minute details to help you get the most out of the weekend.  

This year the second-hand book sale will take place in the school and will be open from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon.

The festival opening is at 19.00 on Friday in the salle des fêtes with speeches, a display of the school children's work with author Julie Eugène and an apéro dinatôire. 

On Saturday and Sunday afternoons between sessions, you can enjoy free tea and home-made cakes in the school canteen.   

This year we are lucky enough to have all 7 British authors with us for the festival dinner, allowing us to accommodate more festival goers.  We still have a handful of places left.  The three-course meal with wine and coffee included costs 28€ and will take place in the salle des fetes in Espinas.  

There are still places available for Andrew Lownie's talk on The Mountbatten's (Saturday 16h00) and Patrick Gale's session (Sunday 16h15).

If you are making a day of it and want to eat in Parisot at lunchtime, the two village restaurants will be serving lunch and the bakery will be serving sandwiches, baguettes and homemade pizza.  We recommend that you book for the restaurants as they get very busy and, unlike in previous years, we will not be handling the lunchtime bookings.  

L'Auberge de la Castille 
05 63 24 02 14
Fourchette & Cie 05 63 64 05 41

The authors and Festilitt team will be eating at La Castille, so if you want to join us, don't forget to mention that you're with the festival party when you book.

Poorpaws book sale

Hallo Everyone,
Just a gentle reminder of the Book Sale this coming Saturday 19th October at St. Pantaleon Salle de Fetes, 10am to 15.00pm.  Thousands of great condition books at 1 euro, plus dvds and cds.  Coffee, tea, cakes, snack lunches, everything for a great day out, especially if the weather is bad !

Whilst sorting I found £40 wrapped in a supermarket receipt in a book by Paul Adam, if this is yours and you can prove it I will of course give it back, if it is not claimed it goes in to the sale pot.

A great deal of care and effort is put into these sales so I do hope you will support us and by that support Poorpaws, La Mere aux Betes and Cancer Support France.

See you Saturday,

Sue x
