Ramblers from Burnley Twinning Association in France

The Burnley Twinning Association have recently returned from a four day walking visit to our twin town Vitry-sur-Seine in France.

The group took advantage of the sunny autumn weather and participated in a series of rambles in and around Paris which were arranged by their hosts.

They also stayed in the homes of their French friends and met together for a couple of evenings to eat and exchange conversations in both English and French.

During their time in France, they visted the Parc de Sceaux Valéé, walked by the Arc de Triomphe, The Eiffel Tower, and through the Bois de Boulogne.

On their last day they followed the famous Chemin Racine around Chevreuse before finishing their walk at a French guesthouse.

Kay Smith, secretary of the Burnley Twinning Association, said: “The welcome we received in France was very warm, and an invitation has been offered to the twinning members of Vitry to come over and walk around out beautiful Lancastrian countryide next year.”
