FEBRUARY 2006 NEWS UPDATE

KTA has involved many people over the past 16 years:
• members who have participated in exchange visits between Knebworth and
  Châtelaillon-Plage
• local groups who have organised their own trips or sporting tournaments with our Twin
  Town in France, or danced at festivals there
• children like those at the Stepping Stone Nursery who have received a grant for their
  French class and those who took part in our Anglo-French art competition
• all who come to our social and fund-raising events – talks, dances, quizzes, wine
  tastings, plays, fashion shows, walks, trips, etc.

Many thanks to all of you who have given support in any way.

A good opportunity to thank our members is at the Sunday lunch and AGM to be held at 11.45 am on February 5th, at the Knebworth House Garden Terrace Room. At the time of going to print, most tickets have been sold already – a very encouraging sign that all is well!

. Châtelaillon-Plage Tennis Club will visit Knebworth
April 27th – May 1st. Knebworth Twinning members have been invited for a long weekend in Châtelaillon-Plage

Dates for your diary
• Friday March 31st

Were you among the 120 people who enjoyed Mervyn Miller’s talk about the architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens?

Then we have another treat for you!

Jane Brown, a world renowned author of many books about gardens and gardeners, has agreed to continue this theme for us with an illustrated talk,

“Gardens of a Golden Afternoon”
The story of the partnership between
Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll

Gertrude Jekyll collaborated with Lutyens on gardens for many of his houses, including Knebworth House and Home Wood. She created over 400 gardens in the UK, Europe and America and her influence on garden design is pervasive to this day.

Knebworth Village Hall, Park Lane, Knebworth Friday March 31st 2006. Doors open at 7.30 for talk at 8.00. Tickets £5 for KTA members, otherwise £7, obtainable from KTA, 12 Stonecroft, Knebworth SG3 6BL (cheques made out to KTA.) This includes a drink and the opportunity to meet socially afterwards.

• Saturday November 25th 2006
A “posh-frocks pre-Christmas special!”

The Committee joins me in wishing you all a very Happy New Year. We hope to see you in 2006: new members are always welcome!

 
Best wishes, 

Joy Hall, Chairman.
