The Parish of St Clément is actively re-establishing it's links with Cancale in Brittany. The Maire of Cancale is so proud of the union between the two areas as Cancale is the only Breton town to be linked with one of our twelve parishes in Jersey.
Following a very successful visit to Cancale by parishioners last May for the International Pétanque competition, we, accompanied by the new Miss St Clément, will be returning to Cancale from the 18th - 21st. May to participate in Cancale's carnival weekend
The programme will involve a friendly pétanque match on the Friday afternoon, followed by their 'interville' games on the Saturday. The twinning committee is seeking reasonably fit parishioners aged between 18-80 to take part in these fun team games.
On the Sunday, there will be a procession of 'floats' through the streets of Cancale. St Clément will be entering a small trailer, mainly decorated by contributions from students at Le Rocquier School, and parish bunting in this three hour procession.
Any parishioner who would like to be involved in this carnival weekend or is interested in finding out more about future twinning activities, is asked leave contact details at the parish hall.
Reciprocal activities are being planned for later in the year to welcome Cancale visitors to Jersey, and in particular, to St Clément
