For those on their own on 24 December

You are very welcome to join others also on their own, for fun and games and a Christmas meal from 19:45 - 23:00 at Eau Vive, in good time to return to CCL for the Christmas service at 23:00 if you wish.
L'Eau Vive is situated at 20 Rue Véronèse, which is very close to the métro station - St. Maurice Pellevoisin - when coming out of the métro station go down the street opposite (Rue Gounod) and at the bottom of the hill turn right. L'Eau Vive is in the old Post Office on the left.
It's free but you need to sign up by contacting Mark and Judy Bolton either by phone on 03 20 96 13 30 or by e-mail at mark.bolton@wanadoo.fr or judy.bolton@wanadoo.fr. before 21st December.
