The two twinning associations in Lyme Regis that link the town with Barfleur in France and Bermuda got together for a boules and barbecue afternoon, writes Chris Carson.
Some 35 members, their friends and families met at Lyme Regis Football Club, where a raffle and a few friendly rounds of the French version of bowls were accompanied by sausages, burgers and plenty of talk about twinning experiences.
The aim was to raise funds for the two associations, encourage new members and provide an opportunity for current members to meet up again.
Speaking ahead of the event, the chairman of the Lyme Regis/Barfleur Association, John Dover, who also serves on the Bermuda group, said: “There has already been one such successful event, but this time we thought it would be fun to involve both groups who do so much to cultivate friendship for our town with others overseas.”
