Visit to Bohars This May – Your Invitation

Over the Bank Holiday at the beginning of May this year a group from Tarporley and nearby villages will travel to France to visit our twin town of Bohars in Brittany.  Our French “twins” provide accommodation and organise events from the Saturday evening through to the Monday morning.
Would you like to join us?  If so please contact David Dunning on 01829 781426 or email daviddunning53@googlemail.com
The Twinning Association covers Tarporley and all the villages in the surrounding area; generally the same as the “Tarporley Talk” distribution area.

 

Young Tarporleans Visit Bohars

At the end of August 12 teenagers from Tarporley, plus 2 supervisors, travelled to Bohars for a week of activities and cultural exchanges. They stayed with local families and the program included a visit to Ménez-Meur nature reserve, wakeboarding in Saint-Renan, bowling, climbing and zip lining; and swimming in Bertheaume Relecq-Kerhuon.

Carnival 2015

Carnival Stand

This year we had a stand at the carnival and it was a great success with our combined selling of delicious cakes and telling people about the Twinning Association.  We hope to get a few new members as a result.

We also took part in the parade; on food this time.  maybe next year someone can loan us a Citroen 2CV?

Informal Meeting – 28th June

We will be having a short informal meeting on 28th June, to discuss the young persons’ visit to Bohars in August 2015.

If you’ve not been to a meeting before then phone David Dunning beforehand for details (see the Contact Us page).

Visit to Stretton Mill

We took our French guests to Stretton Water Mill.  West Cheshire Museums were able to provide a French-speaking guide.

The group learned (mostly in French) about how flour was milled in past centuries. One of our visitors, Pierre, was particularly interested as he is a retired miller himself, albeit in a more modern flour mill in Brittany.

Had it been a sunny day we could have sat on the benches by the lake afterwards – but the weather wasn’t so good and we were obliged to retire to the Cock O’Barton for drinks!

Visit from Bohars

Last weekend we hosted a group of visitors from Bohars, and had fun showing them some of the local sights.  More of that in a later post, but for the moment here’s a photo from our celebration dinner at Willington Hall.
