Meetings are mostly in French with talks by invited speakers and
our own members.

All the summer lunches are well attended as you can see. This way we are able to keep in touch during the “dry” season and enjoy a good natter and a wee refreshment at the same time.

President's letter of welcome.
My greetings and warmest welcome to members old and new!
Session 2014 -2015 is upon us and another happy year of stimulating and entertaing talks awaits. The programme we have arranged for you is wide- ranging informative and fun so come along and enjoy it.
When? 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month from 12.15 to 1.45pm

Where? Conference Room (GH742) 7th floor Graham Hills Building

Cost? £10 p.a payable at any meeting but preferably the first

Caveats?  YES one. It is a rule of the University that to become a Club member, you  must be a member of The3ls Students Association 
 which also costs £10p.a which should be paid directly to The Association

This year we are introducing a new social element for your delight ; once a month we plan to provide a wee libation after the meeting, which will give us all a chance to mingle and make new friends. There will be a very modest charge of £2 for this jolly addendum.
Finally, this club is for you all to enjoy and I would be really delighted to get suggestions from members that would enhance that enjoyment and perhaps expand the programme.Best of all, I should like some volunteers who would be prepared to talk for just ten minutes , on a subject of their own choice, at our Pot Pourri session.
Looking forward to seeing you. Kindest regards Gerry.
( Incidentally, the French Book Club also meets on Fridays from 10.30 to 11.30a.m  in the Common Room library on level 2)
