A party of French children from St. Jean Primary School, Douarnenez visited Falmouth between 3rd and 5th June. The party spent a wet Tuesday morning at Pendennis Castle and, after a picnic lunch, visited the National Maritime Museum in the Afternoon. They spent Wednesday at St Francis School, had a barbecue in the evening and left after breakfast on Thursday.
On the 17th April ten members of our association met in Falmouth library to welcome the inaugural selections of books in French sent by Douarnenez Library. The books were brought over from Brittany by Marie Bouguer, the Cape Finistere liaison officer for Cornwall. They are now there for anyone to borrow as a normal library book. It looks a good, eclectic mix of seventeen books. Also brought from Douarnenez was a selection of free books, in French, for anyone who would like them. A gift of library carrier bags was very well received.
On Friday 2nd March, five members met in Falmouth Library to pick a selection of books for members of the Jumelage to read. The diverse selection of books includes Cornish novels, large print novels, a book on historic Falmouth and children's books. These were taken to Douarnenez by Marie Bouguer, the Cape Finistere co-operation officer. She will bring back their selection of French books for us to read. These will be displayed in the library on a shelf dedicated to Twinning.
The Mousehole Male Voice Choir performed in Douarnenez on 8th July 2017. They did three concerts around Brittany. Each in a place that is twinned with a Cornish town. The choir thanked the Twinning Association for helping them facilitate the concert.
