Six have an adventure in Mumbles!

A group of six from Hennebont visited Mumbles from June 14–20 to stay with families from Mumbles, who joined them in some enjoyable activities.

There was also an official reception at the West Cross Inn and a meeting with representatives of Mumbles Community Council to discuss arrangements for the tenth anniversary of the signing of the Mumbles–Hennebont twinning charter, which will take place in Hennebont in September.
