Epeigné-les-Bois: more eating and drinking + vintage transport + church repairs + team of pigeons

 Lunch tent erected by Epeigné's Plan d'Eau
Following on from the Répas des Ainés yesterday, today saw the Pique-nique of the Association des Amis des patrimoines d'Epeigné-les-Bois, who were blessed with a lovely early autumn day. 


 Apéro in brilliant sunshine

 Hard at work enjoying the apéro


Epeigné's Lac is not just a good place for a picnic but also from time to time can be a witness to an exchange between vintage transport enthusiasts!Here Dominique Hisbergue on the Royal Enfield chats to Oliver – the owner of a 1966 Chevrolet Impala. 


Repairs to Epeigné-les-Bois' church, which the village's central feature, continue with Stage 2 now underway. 

Fairly early morning light picking out the repair work on the upper part of the church.  


Bearing in mind the number of strikes (grèves) in France, Epeigné-les-Bois has invested in a flock of highly trained pigeons, who will be able to take over should La Poste go on strike and so continue to provide an exemplary service.
