Christmas Party 2018 – 1 December!


Keeping it Classy for Christmas!


When: Saturday 1st December 2018

Where: Les Terrasses Restaurant, Tourettes (in the Var, not sur Loup)

How Much?

Paid Up Members – €50
Non-members       – €65
                                   (and includes membership for next year as a bonus)

If you haven’t booked already, now is as good a time as any to make the commitment. Just a short email to me ( will suffice





The menu will be:

Amuses Bouches

Feuilleté de Fruits de Mer

Pintade Farci

Traditional Christmas Pudding with a Brandy Custard – Trifle – Cheese Plate.


I know some of you might have allergies, are vegetarians or just don’t like some dishes (Padre and Christmas pud is a prime example!), so let me know by return which dishes you would prefer to substitute, so that I can arrange something acceptable with Chef David.

I will be bringing the Christmas Puddings from England, so do let me know if you would prefer not to eat this delightful dish.










The Programme


Most of you have requested a Saturday afternoon Hash, so this will be hared by Padre and me (or maybe a guest volunteer), at a starting point near to the Party venue to be advised.

I have pre-booked all 10 rooms at Le Relais du Lac in Montauroux, and managed to obtain a small discount.

Le Relais is within 2km of our party venue, and as previously announced, there will be a shuttle service for those incapacitated!

Some rooms are trebles (all-round??), and total bed capacity at Le Relais is 25. Room only Rates are:

Double €50; Triple €60.

If you require a room, please call Severine at +334 9476 4365 and mention that you are part of the block booking made by Stuart Pegg. The hotel cost is not included in the party price, and anyone booking will be responsible for all hotel charges, but do not take the hotel breakfast on Sunday, as it will be provided chez nous before the HoD run.

Rooms will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

However, Severine has undertaken to find additional accommodation, once all of the hotel rooms have been booked, so give her a call ASAP.



Please let me know who will be partaking of the LOCAL shuttle between the restaurant and their lodgings, also where you will be staying to facilitate planning.


Further updates, including a list of attendees will be posted over the next week or so.
