Last January we went to a village meeting about the new Salle des Spectacles. We wrote about it here. We ended that post with a 'to be continued...'
Well, the 'to be continued' moment has arrived; after a fashion. There has been progress. For a long time, as is common with these types of projects, nothing happened.
No acitivity last spring, none during the summer, nor in early autumn. Then a flurry of signs went up and, what can only be described as a posse clutching clipboards, wandered round chatting vociferously every Monday morning.
Finally in October they started taking the tuiles [tiles] off the roofs of the barns that are to be converted. The re-roofing has now been as good as finished and they've also constructed the new join which will link one original barn with the other.

The freezing weather we're having at the moment has put paid to any work on site right now but since November they have been busy most days of the week.

It is all to be completed by June of this year, well in time for the annual 'quatorze juillet' celebrations. We'll see....
... and let you know.
