OUR LAST VISIT TO CEYRAT – 23rd to 29th July 2022 – REPORT

Twinning visits have just restarted after a pause of 2½ years due to covid. It was our turn to visit Ceyrat. In the past we have travelled there by coach and ferry, but because our numbers were much reduced (only 12 of us) that would have been uneconomical so we braved the Eurostar and SNCF train instead. It was a wise move as we avoided the perils of Heathrow, Dover and train strikes!


There’s also the opportunity to go with our group to Ceyrat next year2024, where you will stay in a French home. Ceyrat Twinning will organise and pay for our trips each day. Your only expenses would be the cost of your travel to Ceyrat. 

It’s a great opportunity for children who are doing French GCSE, or younger children who are just starting to learn French at primary school, to hear ordinary, everyday French being spoken. Not forgetting the parents who might like to soak up the French way of life when we go to Ceyrat.

The ability to speak French is not essential – we all muddle through somehow! And we try to match up people who don’t speak any French with French families who speak English
