A party from the Vannes Mairie visited Fareham in September 2016 to participate in the 50th Anniversary celebrations of FVTA. There was a simultaneous visit by a non-official party of Vannes citizens. This was the programme of the visit.
Fareham Borough Council issued a press release marking the unveiling of the 50th Anniversary Sculpture.
The main event took place on September 12th: the unveiling of the Twinning Sculpture in the garden of Westbury Manor in West Street. Sailors from HMS Collingwood conducted a Freedom Parade from Council Offices through High St. and West St., led by the Band of The Royal Marines.
A video/slideshow of the visit is on You Tube here . You can find videos of the Collingwood Freedom March on You Tube : by Fareham BC, Mr X, and Mr Y.
Here are some photographic memories of the visit.
And, finally, the article recording the event, in the town magazine, Fareham Today.
