President Pam Smith is shown exchanging flags with the Rotary Club of Loudun in France, District 1720. Pam and Chris recently visited the Loudun Club on their visit to their holiday home in the Vienne region of France. They were made very welcome and invited to visit again on their next trip, although there were some difficulties due to the fact that Pam and Chris speak only a little French and the Loudun club members spoke no English. Loudun is a small club, similar on size to Osgoldcross and Elmet and is also a relaxed club. They meet weekly but do not have a meal but typical of France, they close the meeting with a glass of sparkling wine, produced by one of their members.
