We are a group who seek to promote international friendship and understanding.

We meet together regularly for social events and fundraising and take part in exchange visits with similar groups from our twin cities and partner towns abroad.

This week, February 16th - 21st  we  welcomed Dominique Mareille from our Vannes Association who expressed a wish to come to us because she was interested in practising her English before she takes an Aural examination in April

During her time here she has been hosted by the Trickett family. Pat and Allan Trickett have  hosted Dominique in the past. Pat arranged with the committee and with her choir members,  a week of local experiences.

Her visit  included speaking with our President  Lord Mayor Cllr Lindsley Harvard and visiting the Council House, the Herhert Art Gallery and the Transport Museum with Chairman Cllr Ram Lakha and Lady Godiva, Pru Poretta.  ( see  Photos in the Gallery)

In addition, she has also been taken round Coventry with Pru Porretta and given a tour of Coventry Cathedral, by our own Mary Goodwin, who is a Cathedral tour Guide.

She has visited  Warwick and the Castle, walked all round Kenilworth and been to the Book Farm, Coventry, with its thousands of books in English, taken to Birmingham  to hear a concert with our Secretary Linda Hirons and her husband and generally had a very happy time.

She will be taking our best wishes to our Vannes friends shortly.

The group have been invited to Vannes and have accepted their kind offer.
The date of our visit is June 29th for one week
We look forward to that event very much knowing how kind and interesting our Celtic friends are !
