A group of ‘twinners’ from Tarporley and surrounding villages travelled to Brittany over the early May Bank Holiday, staying in the homes of friends in Bohars.
They had a busy time and highlights of the trip included a spectacular cabaret evening ‘Breizh Paradise’ and a trip to nearby Brest by tram to see the ‘Printemps des Sonneurs’ spring folk music festival in the city streets. Some of the group visited the very unusual “Enclos Paroissial’ churches of Lampaul-Guimiliau, Guimiliau and Saint-Thegonnec.
On the Friday night the group attended a choral concert in the village hall Roz Valan given by the choir ‘Churs en Cavale’ from Brest and the choir ‘Aux Quatre Vents’ from Bohars, over 100 singers in all, to raise money for research into Multiple Sclerosis.
Food naturally played a big part in the weekend, including an informal bring-and-share lunch on Saturday, again at the village hall, and finishing off on Sunday evening in the local crêperie ‘Le Kerouak’. The Tarporley group took over the entire restaurant with orders of savoury galettes and sweet crepes for 30 people.
After recovering from all that they are now preparing for the young visitors from Bohars to Tarporley in late August. If you would like to get involved and host a youngster (ages 12 to 16) in August then please get in touch via the website www.tarporleytwinning.org.uk or phone David Dunning on 01829
