If you are keen to know how to take a great photo like the one of Chateau Chillon below, then Alistair Scott the local author of The Greatest Photography Tips in the World ,will be on hand to give advice at the next Living in Nyon event this Thursday evening. He also will be garnering interest to see if there are enough keen photographers out there in the Nyon area to run a course on the subject in English, so come along and meet him to find out more.
If you are a newcomer to the area and love skiing there will also be someone who is passionate about the sport (he managed to ski every month last year) so he can advice on skiing locally and in the Alps.
Finally there will be a representative from the Oak Hill School of Nyon, this school is dedicated to supporting children with learning differences all in English, she will be there to answer any questions you have about the school.
And of course I will there too. A few readers have asked me the format of these evenings, so here’s the answer below.
Firstly, the evening is FREE! There is no entry charge, however as it is held in a café/tea room it would be much appreciated that you bought at least one or two drinks, whether it is a soft drink, coffee or wine etc to keep the owner happy, and for us to be able to continue in this lovely, cosy central venue.
Did you know you can borrow English books from the large range of books that are on the shelves around the café, and have a sandwich, soup or slice of quiche during the day too?
Secondly, although I ask experts in their fields to come along there is no “talk”, they are just making themselves available to give advice.
Thirdly, I don’t ask people to register in advance in order to turn up, but it helps with numbers if you do. Also if you have a specific question about Nyon that needs answering, then email me in advance email@example.com and I can try to get an answer for you by Thursday.
And finally, the event starts from 18:30 but come along when you want. I tend to introduce the “experts” to those there at around 19:00 and folk come and go until around 20:30. Even if you have lived in the area for a long time you are still welcome to come along to meet new faces.
I hope this answers your question and I look forward to meeting you.
