The Frankton Commemorative Walk 2016

May 28, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

The 8th edition of the Commemorative Frankton Walk.

Saturday 28 May 2016

“Laver and Mills” itinerary

“For the Frankton Souvenir Members”

(Chierzac 17)

The route is about 12km via the “Ouvrard” and “David” farms.

The walk will finish at about 1 pm at the “Les Barbins” farm where the walkers can enjoy a regional menu (reservations before 25/05/12, 25€ per person. Max 100 people).  (Menu: Aperitif, “Assiette Gourmande” starter, duck-breast, salad, apple-tart)

Reservations to be made at the ‘Office de Tourisme de la Maison de la Forêt’ by email: otmontlieu@fr.oleane.com or by telephone:

The route will be arrowed by the Community of Communes of Haute Saintonge, who will also ensure the walkers organization and whose insurance will cover the event. They will also inform the communes through which the walk will pass.

The tourist office will promote this walk by contacting the local press who will announce this event and its history. Local journalists will be invited on the day.  Fliers developed jointly by the Frankton Souvenir association and the Tourist Office will also be handed out.

Mr. Furet and mayors from the following local communes:  Bussac, Bédanac, Orignolles and Montlieu Large, will be invited.

We are hoping that Mr. Furet will tell the walkers about his experiences, in front of the “Ouvrard” farm.

We hope that thanks to this commemorative walk and the participation of numerous local groups and organizations, we will boost the Frankton project.

The Frankton Association will invite its members and supporters on the walk and all those who have taken part in the numerous meetings will also be informed (those in charge of pathways, local council members…)
