Formed in 1993, we are an association of English-speaking people enjoying Normandy, who aim to help each other in our integration into the French way of life and form links with the local French community.
We organise events, walks, visits to places of interest and local enterprises and conversation groups, all of which enable us to learn more about our local countryside and communities. We frequently enjoy seasonal celebrations and the food of Normandy.
