Celebrating Bastille Day July 14th 2018

The French National Day is the anniversary of Storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, in these times on this date it is a time for the French to celebrate the historic event.

On a quieter note the Friends of Chartres made contact with the Tangmere Twinning Association and arising out of that we jointly celebrated the day with an afternoon of Boules followed by a bring and share tea, it was a success enjoyed by all and future events were discussed, which we look forward to.
