The committee usually meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 7.30 pm
at the Old Latin House, Market Hill (Stephanie's home). Anyone is welcome to attend
but it is helpful to know beforehand so that we can welcome you. There is very limited parking:
it might be easier to park in Cornwalls Meadow and to walk up from there.
The next meeting is on Wednesday 7 November 2018 at 7.30 pm.
If you wish to raise a specific matter contact Jane Mordue

you will love ". Two students from the Rotal Latin School have already agreed to go and others are considering it. A small group is intending to spend
the weekend (travelling by air) from Friday to Sunday over the same weekend. Special tours will be arranged by our German hosts.

Friday 5 October - Cheese and Wine Tasting Evening

Maids Moreton Village Hall. These evenings usually end up fully booked so book early. Tickets at £15 each are available from
Geoff. Paid-up members will reeive a discount of £2 on the price for each pre-arranged ticket.
3-4 November - Multi-town (4 towns) Twinning Exhibition in Mouveaux
We have agreed to take part in this. We will at least have an exhibition stand about Buckingham but we hope that other town
organisations might like to take part, either by having an exhibition stand of their own or by doing an activity as part of a
programme organised by Mouvaux over the weekend. Planning is now in hand and we would welcome ideas (to Stephanie please).
Wednesday 14 November - Twinning Association AGM
This will take place in the University. Further details will follow.
1-2 December - Mouvaux Marche Noel
We have already agreed that as usual we will send a small group to this event to run a stall selling Christmas goodies. Those
interested in being involved should contact Jane.
Saturday 15 December - Buckingham Christmas Parade
We plan to take part both in this and accompanying Community Fair in the Community Centre. Ideas are welcome.
The Cycling Clubs are organising another get-together. Cultural exchanges are being planned involving art, design and fashion.
Nordic walking with a German group from Neukirchen-Vluyn is being investigated. Visits to Jazz festivals are being
considered (Tourcoing has an annual one in October each year). We are looking at some ideas involving exchanges on
rural crafts. Small group visits (involving one or two cars) from and to Neukirchen-Vluyn and Mouvaux
will continue: one involving our respective walkers is being considered. We are looking into the possibility of a
French visit to Silverstone Race Circuit. An idea about book exchanges between libraries is now being planned.
Winslow Lions are seriously looking at a link with Lions in Neukirchen-Vluyn. Links between Rotary Clubs in each town
are being considered.
