Hello,

Events in France for your Diary

MEUSE MADINE

I am attaching a copy of the information received from Meuse Tourisme about their annual “Fête de Camping Car” from 11th. to 14th. May 2017.

MONTGOLFIADE AT THOUARS.

The 9th.Annual Hot Air Balloon festival will be held as usual on the racecourse, ( on the road between Thouars and Saumur) from 1st. to 3rd.September. There is always an area reserved for motor-home parking, and unless things change this year, there is no charge for parking or for entry into the event.

NEW SPEED LIMITS IN FLANDERS.

This is a copy of the item in the Camping and Caravan Club Magazine.

Brakes on in Belgium

The speed limit on regional roads in Flanders has been reduced from 90kph. To 70kph.

Flanders is the Northern part of Belgium, including Zeebrugge port and excluding the Brussels Capital region.

The change came into force on 1st.January and the new limits apply even if there are no warning signs.

BELGIAN ROAD TOLLS.

I have been assured by the Secretary of the FICM (who is Belgian) that the road tolls now applicable to vehicles over 3.5 ton, are for goods vehicles only and does not apply to motor-homes.

The Club bookings for the Euroraduno in Italy are now closed, but as I stated in Newsletter 100, any member wishing to book directly can do so before 30th.April.

There will be 4 of our motor-homes attending the EuroCC in Spain and 7 going to Italy.
