A party of 20 Fareham citizens, led by our Mayor and Mayoress, visited Vannes 24 – 28 May 2017 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of jumelage with Fareham. The visit coincided with the famous Semaine du Golfe , and with the Des Roues et des Voiles veteran car event attended by 20 members of the South Hampshire Vehicle Preservation Society.
There were visits to the ports participating in the Semaine du Golfe; dedication of a children’s playground as Le Square Fareham; a reception and speeches in the Mairie (Maire Robo tweeted the occasion here ); a picnique jumelage & visit to a fishing museum at Etel; a visit to the Chapel at St Cado; an evening demonstration of traditional Breton folk life and dancing; and a Gala Dinner on the Presqu’ile de Conleau.
Here are some photographs recording the highlights of this wonderful visit, made in beautiful hot weather.
