Hello, everyone, and a very Happy New Year to all Burgundy Friends members from your Committee. We hope you’ve coped well with the cold snap (not in Australia), and all had an enjoyable Christmas.
You’ll be pleased to know that BF started off the New Year with a bang on Wednesday. We had another of the successful “Not Monday Men” coffee/ lunch meetings, this time at La Brasserie in Autun. What a place it is, too! Amazing food, and very reasonable prices. Eleven of us turned up, ten for lunch, and although the staff were a bit surprised they rallied round and found space for us – and not a minute too early, as it’s a very busy and popular eatery. Given the amount and standard of the food, and the excellent service, plus the reasonable prices, that’s not surprising, but it does show that it’s advisable to book!
We had a great chat and catch-up over a leisurely lunch. Hopefully even more members will be able to come to the next of these meetings, which is going to be re-named – the current one is a bit of a mouthful.
Enjoy what’s left of January – the days are getting longer and Spring is just around the corner. Remember that there will be the BF AGM (via Zoom) very soon – circumstances have made setting a date a bit difficult, but it’s in hand. Please do try to attend, as it’s an important one and we want your voices to be heard.
Once again, all the best to all members!
Kate on behalf of the Committee.
