City of Bath Petanquers take tea in Aix

Bath represented at the Aix Market

Club Chair Lesley Hall and Secretary Diana Lockwood flew the flag for Bath in Aix for 5 days at the beginning of the month. Taking part in the Aix Twinning Christmas market for the first time, Lesley had selected 4 different blends of loose leaf tea from Bath firm Gillards, and a range of goods with a Bath and British theme, all of which sold well. The  Mayor and Mayoress of Bath were also there helping to serve tea in between official engagements. Diana was there with jewellery that she designs and makes.  She found her earrings were particularly popular with French and Italians.  Lesley and Diana were kept so busy that they did not have time for a single game of boules, although they did meet up with some of the boulistes who came over to Bath in the summer.  They are already planning to go to Aix again next year

. Next time they’ll take more Earl Grey, more earrings, and allow more time for boules!
