Re: The Welsh
Hi there. Are there any sessions that run through August?
Re: Le Welsh
just to let folks know this session is still going strong even though we have had a change of pub ownership - usual french things like holidays and opening times apply . The session is in two parts - a slow session at six ish followed by a faster session at 9 ish
