Who We Are

AGLR has received a warm welcome from the Anglophone community as well as excellent support from local authorities and institutionals.

A Look Back


In addition to ever popular activities such as coffee mornings, hikes, French drinks and cooking fun, a number of special events deserve a mention. 

In the upholding Anglophone traditions category, members joined the green party - aka  AGLR's  annual St Patrick's Day celebration - on 17 March and enjoyed signature green food and drinks, quiz, Irish dancing and singing. 

On the Fourth of July, sparklers flared, the star-spangled banner was raised and live musicians played American classics in honour of U.S. independence. 

Extra Special! Sporting pink Arago supporters' t-shirts, members rooted for the home volleyball team in February. AGLR member Graham Vigras, Aragos' middle blocker, arranged for us to meet other players in the supporters' lounge. In June a gourmet lunch was served to members at the fabulous Cote Mas restaurant accompanied by wonderful wines from the domaine. The Bad Girls Groove group visited Sete twice to entertain us. They are becoming quite a fixture on the local music scene and we look forward to hearing what guitarist and member Roger Bolt has in store for 2015. For art lovers, Marie Zammler organised guided tours of two exhibitions at Musee Paul Valery.


When it came to integrating with the local community, several members volunteered to help at the Escale a Sete and Images Singulieres festivals. And importantly, in answer to the big demand to learn English, a successful French/English language partnership program was launched in February.


Looking Ahead


We will be making an announcement at the beginning of March as to the future direction of the AGLR. All regular events will continue.


Meanwhile, we note that members sometimes express interest in activities such as book and film discussionsgolf outings, dog walking and cultural/sightseeing outings. If you would like to organise an activity you can simply send an email on the AGLR Forum, checking first that there is no conflict with other activities and asking interested members to reply to your personal email or phone.
