History of BritsNîmes

A little history of BritsNîmes

The Association BritsNîmes was founded in 2002 by Robin Boxall.

He and a group of friends were aware that there was a need for a social network for English speaking people in the Gard where they could meet, get help and advice and exchange their experiences of life in France.

To be able to meet, three events were organised every month, a Walking Club, a Restaurant Club and a Book Club. These are still the pillars of our Association.

It started out with mainly British members, but soon French people began to join as well..
Often they had lived abroad, retired in the Gard and wanted to keep up their English.

And then the ball started rolling, other English speakers from many countries who had settled here started also to join.

BritsNîmes is now an Association with over 250 members of more than 20 different nationalities. It has become a truly international community. The place to meet and make new friends.

We are there for each other.

You can come along with any of your knitting, sewing, painting projects or anything 
you like to enjoy creating in company.
So, dig out some of those unfinished craft projects or
come along with those ideas of things you always wanted to make and
join a group of friendly chatty people who like to be creative.

We are offering to share our ideas and expertise,
we can teach you new skills and inspire you to make wonderful things.
Not got anything to make, come along and get some ideas while enjoying a chat.

This new group will be meeting on the 3rd Thursday of every month.
If you are interested contact Gill and let her know what you are going to be doing
