Every year at about this time the Maire has an official function at the salle des fêtes, where he announces the council's plans for this year and recaps last year, thanks everyone for being good citizens, and offers a glass or two of champagne and a piece of Broyé du Poitou.
Imagine, then, our delight and surprise to hear our names in the Maire's speech along with mention of this blog and how it promotes Preuilly sur Claise and presents such a positive view of the life of its citizens, and to be called forward to receive a medal.
Susan and Jean-Paul Charrier (Councillor)
To say we are proud and well chuffed is an understatement.
p.s. Mention must also go to Madame Elton-Wall, who received an honourable mention in the beautiful front gardens competition.
