The friendly society “Les Ch’tis” was created in 2007 to bring together residents of the Washington area whose origin was in the North of France (Le Nord, Pas de Calais and Picardie). Its aim is to offer an opportunity for these friends and their spouses to share memories, exchange ideas and create new friendships.
We meet every trimester and our speaker always treats a subject related to the Region’s culture, history and people obviously around a good table that celebrates the regional gastronomy and products. Before leaving the meeting, it is customary to the sing the hymn of the North “Le petit quinquin” in the local dialect.
Président: Brigitte Carton Asfour
