Twinning Association Announce Autumn Programme of Events

The Henley Falaise and Liechlingen Twinning Association have announced their autumn programme of events.

They are resuming their annual pétanque competition after the enforced break due to the pandemic on Saturday 24 September at the Wallingford ‘Boulodrome’ at the Sports Centre on Hithercroft Road.  The event will start with a picnic at 12.30pm, bring our own food and you can buy drinks from the Clubhouse bar.  Guests as well as members of HFLTA are very welcome to attend the event, the cost of which is £5 per head (under 16s free). If you would like to play, please let Liz McEwen
know by Monday 12th September: phone 01491 575311 or 07903 490892; email

Film nights are continuing on a monthly basis, alternating between French and German films. Films are shown in the King’s Arms Barn at 7.00pm.  On the 27
September, a German film will be shown. They are open to suggestions as to what they show, however the restrictions are that it must be on DVD and must have English subtitles. If no other suggestions are made, we will show one of the episodes of the Heimat 2 series. If you have a suggestion, or would like to join us on the evening, please contact Sue Fitzsimons

Café Parlez is going strong, and they will continue to meet at Café Rouge, 7.30pm, on the second Tuesday and fourth Wednesday of each month, until the clocks go back.

Friends from Leichlingen will arrive in Henley on the evening of Saturday 29 October, and they will stay until Tuesday 1st November. On Sunday 30 October, there will be  a trip to Windsor, taking part in a self-guided audio tour around the castle. The Association will soon be making a group booking for this event, so if you would like to join them, please let us know as soon as possible.  The cost will be approximately £24 per head, and you will probably need to arrange your own transport (although there might be a few spare seats in the German coach on the day).

On Monday 31 October, a variety of activities will be on offer during the day. In the evening, there will be a Celebration dinner at Badgemore Golf Club, to commemorate 40 years of twinning between Henley and Leichlingen.

The HFLTA Autumn party will take place on Friday 25 November at the Christ Church Centre, Henley.
