Bulletin mensuel - septembre 2014

Chers Amis,
C’est la rentrée.  Yes it’s that time of year when we settle back into our autumn routine.  The Cercle Français de Belfast will be starting our new season with its first meeting on 17th September but I thought that you might also like to hear of a few other happenings with a French connection taking place in Belfast … or not too far away.
