Welton Monce Family Twinning Association

 October edition:

 In September, 44 years ago, Welton signed the twinning charter with Monce en Belin in France.  This year, over the August Bank Holiday weekend, we had the pleasure of welcoming 43 of our friends from Monce to visit and into our homes.  

 Our members, from Welton, Dunholme and surrounding area, assembled at Manor Park to greet the coach.  There followed kisses galore, depositing of cases in cars, a reception of bubbly and cakes and brief welcoming speeches from Cllr Chapman on behalf of the PCC and Chairman of the Twinning association Mr Peter Bray, who made a fine effort in French; with a little help from Philippe on his shoulder.  

 Our newest member, Kate Sayles, took the plunge and invited a family from Monce to visit for the weekend, by all accounts it was memorable and fun.  It’s always a pleasure to have new families involved and it would be great welcome in more families with children once again.

 We’d planned for a very relaxed weekend, no long distance travelling and time to explore locally in smaller groups.  With the Steampunk weekend in Lincoln and the new Bomber Command memorial it was easy to entertain.  Saturday we had a group dinner at Gainsborough golf club, starting with a drinks reception in the Solheim suite overlooking the 18th green and the course.  With the sun breaking through the clouds it was a glorious setting; followed by an excellent meal and entertainment by Abba tribute band ‘The Dreambelles’.

 Our Sunday plan of games on the playing field fell apart with the damp weather, so most of us adjourned to the Welton sports & social club for pub games, watching the grand prix and some football and, of course, socialising.  Most families made their own arrangements for the Monday and then amazingly it was Tuesday and our friends were leaving us to travel home to Monce.  We then adjourned home to take a deep breath and relax until next year, when we visit them in Monce.

 Our thanks to everyone who participated making this such a fun weekend.

 The Family Twinning Association is self-funded and our next fundraising event is the very popular Call My Bluff wine tasting on Saturday 27th October.

Tickets are available now for £12.50pp – call Lesley on 863437.
