17/10/2020: The Hope Book Fair has been cancelled. Gendarmes came around at lunchtime under new orders from the Prefecture in Niort and the event has had to close. As we know more we will update this message. Please check our sites and website for further news. Update… it appears the rules for gatherings in the Deux Sevres changed this morning.
