Following the success of the 40th Anniversary Celebrations, Goring and District Twinning Association is now planning the next event, to the international Mushroom Festival in Bellême. This is famously held on the first weekend of October each year.

We would be delighted if you would like to join us.
We hope to run a coach from Goring to Bellême, taking the 08:15 ferry from Portsmouth on Friday 4th October and returning on the 16:30 ferry from Ouistreham on Monday evening, 7th October.
The outline programme will include a fungus forage on Saturday morning, a dinner on Saturday evening, and a visit to the curated exhibition of the fungus found on Sunday afternoon.
If we have sufficient people on a coach, the indicative cost would be £120 per person, to include coach travel and the ferry crossing.
Accommodation will be with host families.
