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.
This month Cheshire Life visited Tarvin and Tarporley, and interviewed Margaret Corlett and Sian Williamson from the Twinning Association.

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?
Our younger twinners and their leaders will be off to Bohars on the 20th of August for a week of activities. Bon Voyage!
We’ll have a stall at Tarporley Carnival on Saturday the 11th of July – please come along if you want to find out more about twinning!
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).
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!
