Anglo-French Barn Dance at Newick Village Hall, May 2010
We organise many events during the year for social and fund-raising
purposes. Our annual Progressive Dinner usually takes place in March, and is
a very good way to meet new members in their own homes. Another popular
event is the family BBQ, which takes place in June/July. We have also
organised successful Skittles and Boules evenings at local hostelries.
All the above events are for members and their guests. However, we also
organise larger fund-raising events that are open to the public. Our annual
Wine and Wisdom Quiz which takes place in early February has become
something of a fixture in Newick, and over the years we have also run our
very own reincarnation of Café René as part of various village events.
Last, but very much not least, are the Official Visits between Newick and
Itteville. These usually take place at the end of May, and for the past few
years we have alternated between Newick visiting Itteville and vice-versa.
