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.
