This has changed a lot over the years. I used to have to go the the Maire to get the key to the dump to let myself in years ago. I've never been asked for ID or needed a card but I haven't been for a little while and it would not surprise me if I did need one now, esp. if they are starting to charge...

Welcome to Pont Noir.
There used to be some informal coffee mornings organised by some members and some book swap events but I don't think these happen now.
There isn't an official meet up, but there is nothing to stop members organising something informal if they like.

That's very handy. We have a book with a bunch of sample letters like these (from maybe 20 years ago) and they helped a lot. There are a lot of complex and expected phrases and paragraphs to include in these type of letters and a template gets you off to the right start.

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 ...
