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.

Day 4 – Departure

After a quick shopping trip in the village we all said our farewells and set off homeward. As we were dropping Anne and Andrew off at Le Mans so they could get the Eurostar home we decided to have a look around the old city and Cathedral.

The huge Cathedral was an impressive sight – on a par with many of the UK’s greatest and the old city was a delight – full of medieval half timbered houses and interesting shops. Saying our farewells to Anne and Andrew we set off for Le Havre and were just about the join the motorway when Liz discovered Anne’s handbag in the van – so we had to return to Le Mans. Luckily we still made the ferry home returning to drizzling rain and autumnal temperatures.
