 Repais Des Aines - 8 October 2017 saw many of the "older generation" gathering in the Salle Polyvalente for their annual lunch - well a bit more than lunch actually! Hosted by Regis Bened, Mayor of Thollon and members of the Centre Communal d'Action Sociale (The Council's social committee), almost 90 of the village's Senior Citizens were entertained over the inevitable glass ( or two) of wine by young members from the Echo Des Memises before enjoying a beautiful lunch prepared and provided by Arnaud and Madeline from Le XV .

 Dancing to the accompanyment of Michel on his accordian and the equally inevitable silly games followed before a brief lull in the proceedings around 5.00pm prior to the evening meal, more dancing and even more ( really! ) silly games. Around 11.00pm and after a wonderfully enjoyable day the last of the revelers began to make their way home.

The "British" contingent, through Thollon.Org. would like to thank Regis and his fellow councilors for their hospitality which is, as always, much appreciated.


 


7-8 October 2017 Changing Retailing Scene- Sadly, for those who know and appreciate the quality and friendly service which the current managers have provided for many years, the Casino Supermarket will close its doors for the final time this weekend. However we understand that the operating activity has been sold and will re-open as a second Sherpa Supermarket prior to the beginning of the winter season.

Nathalie and her husband have been running the Casino for the past 7 years. They are planning to continue to live in Thollon and also to continue to work with the Casino Group in a "locum" capacity for the foreseeable future. Those who know Nathnalie and her husband will wish to join Thollon.Org in wishing them all the very best for the future.

September 2017 The Hunting Season is underway. Take care in the woods!

 Perhaps its worth thinking about a high vis collar or gillet (for the dog!)





Tour du Chablais - Leman-Portes du Soleil 19 August 2017 There was a real buzz around the village as one of the major events in the French racing calendar,the Tour du Chablais "came to town" Following the Prologue in Evian the previous day (and an immense thunder storm in the village overnight!) sunshine and blue skies greeted the 21 teams and the 126 cyclists as they prepared for the 156.3 KM challenge ahead of them. There were teams and young and aspiring professional riders from Switzerland and across France including Aix en Provence:Bourg-en-Bresse:St Etienne:Dijon:and Villefranche en Beaujolais.

At 12.30pm "on the dot" the riders, preceeded by some 30+ motorbike security outriders, sped off through the village to the cheers of a large crowd of locals and visitors lining the route. (Those who anticipated the start would be "Chablais Time" ( always 15 minutes later than advertised !) would have missed what was a truly exciting and colourful spectacle.)

It was some 4 hours later when the leading rider, Maxime Gyot from Velo Club Villefranche Beaujolais crossed the finishing line over 1 minute ahead of the his nearest competitor and nearly 2&1/2 minutes ahead of the peloton.

 Presentations followed with all the class winners receiving flowers and kisses ( well it is France after all) and the overall winner being presented with a huge Reblochon cheese by Thollon's Mayor, Regis Bened.

By early evening it was all over and the "caravan" was on it's way to Thonon in readiness for the third and final stage of the Tour - a further 154 kms around Chablais with the finish in Evian later on Sunday afternoon.

Well done to everyone involved in organising the event and our appreciation to our Mayor, Regis, for helping put Thollon on the map once again!  Many Thanks to RG for this report

A further indication of the growing links between Evian Resort and Thollon?   6 of our new Telecabine have been "re-branded" with some of the current Evian water adverts. - They look really good

A new event in Thollon? Could this be the start of a new music Festival? A talented group (mostly Brits ) set up a rock concert outside St Nicolas on the Sunday 13th August 2017. Great music lovely weather. Thanks to the organisers Frank, John and lead singer Gary plus support for a great afternoon. "JJ" commented that they could play the next evening and every week!
