August in Tarporley

Between the 20th and 27th August, a party of French children from Bohars aged between 13 and 17, along with an 18 year old leader, are travelling to us to see Tarporley and the surrounding areas. Again this is after a covid-created gap in our annual exchanges.

We are looking forwards to their visit! If anyone would like to help out in any way then please get in touch. We could still do with a couple of new host families for the children. This involves providing accommodation and food; everything else is organised by the Twinning Association. No fluency in French is needed!

Back in Bohars

In May 2022 we were able to visit Bohars again, after a covid-induced interval.

We visited Les Ateliers des Capuchins right in the heart of Brest, the biggest covered public square in Europe. It has a varied history of being a monastery, then workshops for various activities including fabrication precision equipment for warships, and now is an open space community workspace and museum

We also went to Locronan, a a medieval unspoiled village in Brittany, south of Brest, a delightful village with some strange characters!

We also visited a Cabaret, exchanged a celebration cake and gifts for 40 years of twinning, making the firm statement that after 2 years of pandemic, we are back and open for business. We were all looked after very well, and all 9 of us had a very good and fruitful time!
