Crewkerne & District Twinning Association held their annual celebration in recognition of Bastille Day and toasted their friends in France with a glass of Pimms in the garden at The Speedwell. Members and guests of the association which is twinned with Igny and with Bures sur Yvette near Paris, were entertained on their arrival by Hilary playing the accordion. An extensive cold buffet and a selection of desserts were served, followed by a variety of cheeses. Monies raised from tickets sales for the evening garden party will help towards next year’s visit to Crewkerne by their French friends.
The Twinning Association’s next fundraising event, which is open to members and non-members will be a Duck Race on Saturday September 1st. The event which begins at 7 pm is being held at the Tithe Barn in Merriott and includes a Ploughmans supper. Tickets cost £6.50 per person and need to be booked in advance by contacting Lorna on 01460 72962 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
