Saturday September 21st saw the success of our second Anglo-French Trade Fair in Secondigny. Located in the salle Alauna overlooking the fabulous lac des Effres, this year's event was bigger and better than the last year with a fabulous atmosphere.

The warm, sunny day encouraged many visitors to come and see what was on offer. With over 70 exhibitors offering a wide variety of services from jewellery to estate agency, to Fosse Septique installation to reflexology to digger hire to Double-glazed windows and doors and loads more; there was definitely something for everyone!

Integration into the community is vital for a successful business and we constantly strive to build good connections with our local French businesses. We were pleased to receive such a positive response to this year's event with a good number of local French exhibitors and visitors.

Monsieur le Maire once again opened the event and he also spoke of the importance of our Anglo-French connection. This year we aided visitors and exhibitors with any language difficulties by providing the free services of translators throughout the day. If anyone was in need of any help, a flag was waved and help arrived

Lunchtime was very busy and as queues grew at the Fish & Chip and Crepes vans, the live music began. We thank Beechy Colclough and guests for the first party, and Alan Vee and Andy Em for the latter. Both bands definitely got people's toes tapping!

The local scout group were busy selling their 2014 calendars and did a super job welcoming all visitors. They counted more than 650 people during the day.

During the course of the day there were a couple of competitions to take part in, and we have those results here. Sarl Prince gave away a beautiful wool rug to the lucky winner: Mr Mick Laverick, while Bradley Warden of Blevins Franks kept visitors busy with a quiz. The winner of this quiz was Les Ellington. Thanks to all who took part.

Sarah would like to say a special 'Thank You!' to Rob, Mum & Dad, Julie, Paul, Kieran, Lesley, Jo, Hazel, Sue and Jon for their invaluable help.

The Anglo-French Trade Fair will be repeated next year on Saturday 20th September 2014. If you would like to reserve your stand now, please feel free to complete the online booking form.
