Jim Reaney and Val Mellor tie for first place in a keenly contested match

Axminster Twinning Association held a skittles evening at The New Inn Kilmington, on Friday.

Attended by 25 members, it was followed by a buffet in the restaurant.

There was a tie for first place between Jim Reaney and Val Mellor.

This year members will be welcoming their French twinners from Douvres la Deliverande, in Normandy, for a weekend in September.

A full itinerary of events are currently in the planning.

A spokeswoman said that any new members are welcome to join, with a great opportunity to make French friends and learn a new culture. It is a particularly great way for children to learn a new language, she said.

This year a number of monthly social events are planned in addition to monthly informal French lessons, always held in a fun atmosphere.

For further information about this lively group please phone Caroline Hillyard on 01297 34497.
