The two historic villages of Raglan in Monmouthshire and Parcé-sur-Sarthe, Pays de la Loire, have recently agreed to, an initially informal, twinning between the two villages.

At a public meeting in late February 2009 residents of Raglan unanimously voted to twin with Parcé. Copies of the presentation can be viewed by clicking here. The meeting also featured a video introduction from the mayor of Parcé which is shown below.

Upcoming Activities

Over the next two months months Raglan will be welcoming its first visitors from Parcé including, on 16th/17th May, Steve Brissault who is in charge of Parcé's twinning programme and in June Parce's Mayor, Jacques Estival, is planning on visiting over the Festival weekend.

Raglan Jazz and Blues band Lounging About have been invited to perform at Parcé's Jazz Festival on the 3rd August and there will be a number of visitors from Raglan for Parcé's village Fete later in August.

Schools in both villages are looking to link up and plans are in place for potential visits from Raglan Scouts and Raglan Parc Golf club.
