I've not heard of anyone getting the points on their UK license, although they have paid the fines (since they live here and drive a French registered car). Unless you've been very reckless I doubt they have the resources to chase UK based folks for speeding fines and I expect that's even less likel...

That's a sad thought but thankfully the twinning thing isn't an EU thing. It's possible that twinning with the UK will become even more popular when it's out since that might make it seem more exotic (or just open to a larger twinning budget haha).

I know. I know. You've all had enough of Brexit and inability of people in charge to actually commit to anything. Me too. There is a government petition that is gaining traction about just cancelling Bexit and staying in. You can sign it here:- Revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU I doubt it'll me...

Here is a short video from YouTube showing Creuse in 1959. There are a lot of recognisable places and although you can see some changes it's very similar
(it's better with the sound off IMO but each to their own).

Nice to see worldwide coverage of the department, but The cafe in the main square is empty by midafternoon. The hulks of burned-out cars dot the moribund train station’s tiny parking lot, abandoned by citizens too poor to maintain them. that doesn't sound like the Guéret I know. It's a bit run down ...

Le Senechal seems to show a number of VO film (although not always in English) although these aren't normally block-busters. iirc there used to be a mobile cinema that went from town to town and also that English language films were sometimes shown in places like Bourganeuf, but it's been sometime s...

Welcome all the recent members - make a post or two: perhaps by introducing yourself Where do you live in Creuse? or by telling us what you think of Creuse What do people feel about living in the Creuse? or by starting a new post. NB: Your first post will be held for approval so won't appear immedia...

Mine has gone up about 2.5% which is pretty much normal.
It should show you on the back page which part has increased, but 300% is a lot unless you had a reduction applied before (because the place was considered a ruin for example).

I noticed a bunch a week or so ago and we heard some after that but didn't see them in the clouds. I am not sure exactly when they come and go, but I always like hearing them and stop to watch the V go by. We also had a couple of large flocks of smaller birds. They were all silent except for their w...

I took them as we walked round. I have at least one or two from each walk, although some walks had more to photograph than others.

There is a small but well stocked Arboretum near Noth (next to the Chateau de la Cazine) which is free and well worth a visit. There is easy parking nearby and although it is on the side of a hill, the gradients aren't too bad There is a map of the layout showing paths and trees. map.jpg Each type h...
