Newsletter – Cafe Cour du Miracle – April 2016

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all well and enjoying these first few days of spring and the lovely sunshine. We are now well rested and hard at work in the cafe! We have cleaned and decorated ready for the new season and are happy to say that we have lots going on in the coming months, both in the cafe and in Vouvant.

So what’s coming up during the months ahead? – here we go with a quick round up:

Wednesday 6th April:
Cindy will be here from 2.30pm with her selection of new and secondhand books for sale and exchange. Why not pop along and have a browse and perhaps a cuppa, a coffee or even a demi or glass of wine. Cindy is here until around 4.30pm and I know she would love to see you, as we would too!

Friday Nights are Menu Nights!
Each Friday evening we offer a set menu evening meal, with a choice of two starters, three main course (one of which is a fresh fish dish) and either cheese or a choice of two desserts. Two courses are 15E00 and three courses are a very reasonable 18E00. We also offer a two course children’s menu. We would recommend booking as space is limited and this will ensure you are able to get a table. If you just want to join us for a drink in the bar you are very welcome to come along and enjoy the evening too, Paul usually has an abundant supply of bar nibbles. Food is served from 7.00pm and last food orders are usually taken around 8.30pm. However, the bar doesn’t close until the last drink has been drunk and the last glass is emptied, usually around 11.00pm.

Saturday Quiz Night is back – Saturday 30th April
Our Saturday Quiz night is back and raring to go! Doors open on the quiz night at 7.00pm on Saturday 30th April. Bookings and payment for teams please to us as soon as possible, with your menu choice. Tickets are 12E50 each, which include a lovely meal – Chicken Pie or Beef and Guinness Pie with creamed potatoes, peas and carrots, and an ice cream dessert as well as some great prizes. Vegetarian pie opetion also available. Bookings cannot be taken unless we have your payment and menu choice as all pies will be cooked to your order.

We have been asked by John and Leonie Henstridge to advise you as follows and would like to take this opportunity to wish them well in the future and we look forward to seeing them at the events they will be attending in Vouvant and around the Vendee and Deux Sevres areas.

To our clients old and new: Following some positive changes in our lifestyle, we have decided to close our Jewellery and Crystal business. The good news is that we have some stock left and we are allowed as Private individuals to attend a few venues each year, selling our existing stock at knock down prices. Vide Greniers, Fete Days and Marche de Noel’s etc. We will let everyone know where and when we will be, but for now I can tell you we will be at the 2nd “Franco/English day in Vouvant on the 7th of August.” We would like to thank all our clients for their kind support, and look forward to seeing them at events to come.

Sunday 15th May – Plant Festival in Vouvant
The annual Plant Fair will be held on Sunday 15th May in Vouvant – lots of stalls with lots of lovely plants for your gardens, planters and window boxes. We will definitely be filling up our greenhouse, garden and courtyard with some of the stunning plants available that day. Look forward to seeing you there!

We have copies of the Deux-Sevres Magazine and the new April/May edition of the Living magazine in stock for you to take away, as well as various UK magazines which you are more than welcome to borrow and return.

OK folks that’s all for now, if you have any news or events you wish to include in the Newsletter please let us know. Looking forward to seeing you in the cafe soon,
Kind regards
Karen and Paul
