A visit to Hollingbourne’s twin of Templeuve for boules training, visits to Lille Old Town and other events. In order to register your interest in attending this event please contact John Cobbett (Tel 880543).
Templeuve is close to Lille which is a big shopping centre and also has the internationally renowned Musee des Beaux Arts. At nearby Lens is the northern branch of Paris’ famous Louvre Museum and Art Gallery which opened in 2013. Nearby there are also the WW1 battlefields and cemeteries so there is a lot to do and see if boules does not appeal. A boules pitch was installed at the Cardwell Pavilion for the 2013 Village Fete.
The programme for the weekend includes a visit to Lille Old Town, a cabaret, a dinner, a boules lesson and a barbecue plus time for shopping for wine and cheese.
UPDATE as of 20th May – This event has been cancelled due to a lack of numbers.
