Enderby - Le Haillan Twinning News
THE JOURNAL (EXTRACT OF NUMBER 459)
ENDERBY TWINNING NEWS
This was a buy evening as the AGM took place after the general meeting.
The Chairman had had a letter from the Mayor of Le Haillan about a name for one of the town’s new sports halls. The Mayor was looking for us to supply the name of a local female sportsperson. The Chairman circulated the details to all the members and, after much soul searching and discussion it was decided to approach Tanni Grey-Thompson who studied at Loughborough University to see if she would agree to her name being used. It was felt that we had to choose someone who had proved herself an established figure in the sports world and who could be Googled by the youth of Le Haillan.
There was a discussion about the relationship between Le Haillan, the Twinning Association and Enderby Parish Centre. Unfortunately, our new parish representative was unable to join us for the meeting but is showing a pleasing interest. We hope to better explain to him the origins of the connection between Enderby and Le Haillan Councils and our part in it.
Christine told us about the Bistrot Pierre evening and the dates of her tea parties for Macmillan. Barbara talked about the Skittles evening and the Enderby Library Quiz and Julia asked for volunteers to help with the refreshments for the play.
The AGM created a new committee with Peter Hurst remaining as Chair and Cynthia Blackton as Secretary but with Jenny Croft being unanimously voted in as Vice Chairperson and Ian Pritchard taking over as Treasurer.
The French twinning President had invited us to say when we would like to make our next visit to Le Haillan and the Late May Bank Holiday was chosen, with a likely starting date of May 24th. Now would be an excellent time to join to meet and get to know the members before the trip to Le Haillan, which we plan to make over the Late May Bank Holiday, 2018.
