Program of the English Club Biel/Bienne

 
 

Dear Member,

Now that the festive season is just round the corner, we hope to give you plenty of opportunity to celebrate and to enjoy the company of your friends at the English Club.

You will notice that we are again meeting at both Restaurant Angolo and Restaurant Romand, so check the programme to be sure of going to the right place.

To help with the service, Restaurant Angolo has asked us to please take our drinks at the bar when we first go into the restaurant and to carry them with us to the second floor.

Schweinscarrébraten, Morchelsauce, Kartoffelgratin, Gemüseauswahl
Dessertvariation

list at the Clubroom by Wednesday, 14 December if you
would like to attend.

BRING A FRIEND

As we had such a good attendance at last year’s "Bring a Friend" evening and as we would like to attract new members to the Club, we would like you to try bring a friend or colleague with you. Don’t worry if you can’t bring anyone – you’ll be welcome anyway.


 

Rest. Angolo

BINGO

Let’s try to get a better attendance than we had last year. There will be lots of prizes to be won and hardly anyone will go home empty-handed. If you can contribute a small prize, it would be much appreciated.

AFTERNOON VISIT TO SCHNOTTWIL

Our member, Jacqueline Kläy, has kindly offered to introduce us to an American lady who, amongst other things, makes beautiful scarves from a mixture of felt and silk. We are going to have a look at the results of her handwork and, if you are creative and feel inspired to make something yourself, you may like to join a class or workshop to learn about the process.
Please let us know in the clubroom, or call Jacqueline
(079 657 91 90) if you would like to join us.
