Cricklade Twinning  Newsletter - Issue 107
June 2019

We are urgently looking for families to join us on the Twinning Visit, so if you know of a family who would or might come on the trip please ask them to contact Chris at or phone 07710075406. We have French families who would like to host them. 

Cricklade Festival Bottle Stall - Sunday June 16th

We will be running a Bottle Stall again at the Cricklade Festival

We will need lots of bottles to run our bottle stall successfully, we need a few good bottles, but other bottles also make for a good stall. Your generosity will be greatly appreciated.

To donate a bottle(s), please deliver them to 19 Pauls Croft. Alternatively, deliver them to 6 Home Ground.

Please could you deliver your bottles preferably by the end of the first week in June, so we can keep track of how many bottles we still need for the stall and present the best stall possible.

The stall will be located outside 45 High Street (next door to C&R Grocers).

We also need volunteers to look after the stall. This is especially important this year as some of us will be away cycling from St Malo to Nice. We appreciate that our members are often involved in several stalls, but the odd hour does allow the stalwarts to take a break. So, if you could email me (chair@ and let me know what period you can be on the stall, that would be wonderful.

We will be setting up the stall from 9am on Sunday 16th June (Father's Day).

We are still looking for people to go on the trip, families with children are especially welcome. The default mode of travel to Sucé is by plane, but if you want to drive or take the train that is perfectly acceptable.

If you want to join us, please let us know as soon as possible, so that we can organise a host family in Sucé. Email Chris at or phone 07710075406.

The flight that we have used as a default goes from Bristol.  You will need to book your own tickets on line. The flight details are EZY6023 Bristol to Nantes Thursday, 4 July 2019  12:00 returning by EZY6024 Nantes to Bristol Monday, 8 July 2019  19:25. The web link for EasyJet is "". Be careful not to use other sites that look like they are EasyJet, they may give you the same price, but give you a bunch of other issues and difficulties.

Transport to and from Bristol will be by car share. If you are going you should have already received a questionnaire about this.
