…and on the subject of the music courses, some hot news that has just come about. One of our English friends here in France,  Alison Benn and her 8 year old daughter Harriet, came to lunch with us the other day and the long and the short of it is that Alison is keen to keep the music courses going at her home La Grand Gennerie, which is near to the village of Carelles a short distance from La Jeuss. She will use the same format as we had at La Jeuss and as well as being a lovely person she is very enthusiastic. So watch this space for future developments. She has already been in contacted  with Mike Silver, Harvey Andrews ,Stan Graham, Bill Whaley and Dave Fletcher, and Iris Bishop and myself who have all agreed to do a week and are just sorting out dates.
