Bastille Day 2014
Park Petanque Club celebrated Bastille Day in style . Bushy Park was “en fete” with tricolour bunting (representing both Republics) surrounding the piste.
The presence of His Excellency Jean-Pierre Theboult, the French Ambassador and his Aide de Camp added to the atmosphere of Liberty, Fraternity & Equality (and Craic!).
This was also an opportunity to discuss the future development of petanque with his Excellency.
The Events Committee erected a gazebo and buffet table with tables, umbrellas and chairs around the piste.
Very stylish and comfortable.
The entire Park Petanque membership contributed to the buffet with a suitably francophile menu. Members of the French community who had met our Park Petangue representatives at the French Embassy reception earlier in the week joined in the games as did many members of the public who happened to be in Bushy on the day enjoying the lovely weather.
We have a number of pictures of the event, and hope to do it again in 2015!
Vive la France
Vive Park Petanque Club!
