The recent visit to our twin-town Bohars was featured in the regional newspaper Le Télégramme.
Here’s my translation (apologies in advance for any errors):
The Bohars-Tarporley twinning committee celebrated its 30th anniversary this weekend. David Dunning, the English president, crossed the Channel with 11 other English twinners. Raymond Le Goueff, the current Boharsien twinning president, gave them a “30th Anniversary Special” Breton hat, and the mayor presented a gift box during a buffet dinner* on Saturday night attended by 80 people.
On Sunday, 37 people headed to Guerledan in the Côtes-d’Armor for a lunch cruise on the lake, under a bright sun, before a visit to this part of inland Brittany. Twenty young people from Tarporley cross the Channel every year to continue this friendship of 30 years. The English return by boat today.
( * I reckon “un apéro dînatoire” means a dinner with drinks but not at the table – anyway it was a buffet. I was there. And drinks, music, dancing and fireworks – more of that later. )
