Visit to Bohars

Over the 2024 May Bank Holiday a group of us from Tarporley, Duddon, Huxley, Bunbury and other local villages travelled to Bohars.

There was a welcome supper at the newly-renovated Bohars community hall, the picture below shows us standing outside it in the very bright evening sunshine.

Another day we ate in a restaurant with spectacular views over Brest harbour, and our other activities included a visit to the Stang Botanic Garden and its greenhouses, a trip to the city of Quimper with a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts and the Saint-Corentin Cathedral.  A great time was had by all!

Visit Brittany in May!

In May 2024 the Tarporley Twinners will be making their bienniel* visit to Bohars in Brittany for the May Bank Holiday weekend; approximately may the 3rd to the 6th 2024.

If you’re interested in joining us, please get in touch!

We’ll be staying with families in Bohars, outside Brest, and visiting some beautiful parts of the surrounding coutryside and seaside in the company of our French hosts.  There will also be good food to be eaten!

*Biennial means once every 2 years.  Had to look that one up myself.

Fifty Years

Fifty years ago, on 2 January 1973, Brittany Ferries tell us their first ship set sail from Roscoff en route to Plymouth. Called Kerisnel, carrying a cargo of cauliflowers, onions and cognac, and bringing Brittany Ferries, owned by the Brittany farming community (which still largely owns the business) to life. Tarporley and Bohars twinners have often used this service in the 35+ years of our Twinning.

Brexit, Covid and politics may have unsettled us, but things are getting back on track and to help them celebrate this special 50th anniversary Brittany Ferries invited Twinning representatives to join them on board their flagship Pont-Aven in Millbay Plymouth on 2 January 2023 for a reception and anniversary dinner on-board.

Here are a couple of pictures from the event. Can you spot our party in the top picture?

A Packed Week Just Ended

Well the visit from France has just ended and as I write they are winging their way back to Brest.

In a packed programme the youngsters enjoyed themselves at Manley Mere, climbed an indoor rock face at Ellesmere Port, visited Alton Towers, went biking in the forest at Delamere, had a barbecue, looked around Chester and went swimming in both Chester’s Northgate pool and at Delamere’s outdoor wild swimming. It’s exhausting even listing it all!
