Richelieu on Facebook

Since signing up to receive Richelieu's office de tourisme posts on Facebook we've been amazed at the range of activities and events going on in our neck of the woods.

Sometimes it may just be an invitation to take a walk round the Parc de Richelieu, or to go visit the plan d'eau and go fishing..
Le soleil avait invité les pêcheurs à l'étang de Richelieu ce week-end !
Les cartes de pêche sont en vente à l'Office de Tourisme (journée ou 1/2 journée)

Other things are more unusual such as the filming of a television programme for Secret d'Histoire en Pays de Richelieu! This is part of a series going out on national television in the summer. If you wish to know more, see here for an article published in La Nouvelle Republique.

This unlikely looking pair hosted an event, including lots of activities for children, at the Domaine Pierre et Bertrand Couly at Chinon...
Journées portes ouvertes au DOMAINE PIERRE ET BERTRAND COULY à CHINON les 4 et 5 mai de 10h à 19h!!
Au programme: Animation culinaire le samedi, atelier découverte du goût pour les enfants, ventes de produits du terroir, quiz œnologique, animations surprises...!

 And, aimed (I'm guessing!) more at an adult audience, was an open day at Chai du domaine Dozon at Ligre..

PORTES OUVERTES du mercredi 8 mai au dimanche 19 mai 2013 au Chai du domaine DOZON à Ligré!
"Du 8 au 12 mai" venez découvrir les Pineaux, Cognac, Vins Blancs de Montlouis, Fitou, Muscat de Rivesaltes, Vins de Bourgueil, Vins de Chinon et d'ailleurs!!
"Samedi 18 et dimanche 19" participez au plus grand pique-nique de France organisé par les Vignerons Indépendants!!

For the more sedate pastime of postcard collecting there was an event to share treasures from a bygone era..

So there seems to be something for all tastes but sadly by the time we get round to reading them, we've usually missed the best bits!

One good use of Facebook, though!

West Yorkshire and "all of France" seem to be the only places where publicity for events seems to come out either the day before the event... or a couple of days after the end of the event... the exception being Loto and Vide-Brokantz in France and Car Boot sales and Beer Festivals in Yorkshire...

I'm growing web between my toes again... just as I thought they were going to fade away!!
