were established and from where the disease St Anthony’s fire took its name.
A group of 25 people from Coalville visited Romans from 16 - 23 August 2009. It
was a very full week of activities and visits - and the weather was very very hot
The Official Reception at the Mairie, where we were welcomed by Michelle Fillograsso,
president of the Exchange and Latifa Chey, the Romans Councillor responsible for
St Antoine L’Abbey
The Exchange of Gifts at the Town Hall
A full day visit to Aix-en-Provence to see the ancient town and view the Picasso/Cezanne
The Medieval hilltop town of Perouges was well worth visiting - fortunately the coach
was able to drop us off at the top of the hill !
The amphitheatre at the bird sanctuary, with impressive displays close to our heads
in the sweltering heat.
And finally a welcome picnic in the shade of the evening where we were treated to
home made fare with a French and Spanish theme. Many thanks to our hosts.
