The Coleford Twinning Association have arranged a coach holiday to St Hilaire de Riez in the first week of August. The coach will leave Coleford in the early hours of Friday 2nd August and will return late on Friday 9th August.
Our partners in St Hilaire have arranged for local families to host visitors who wish to take up that option. Other travellers are staying at local campsites or hotels. St Hilaire de Riez is a popular holiday destination, so book your accommadation early.
The trip coincides with a major three day performance arts festival, which has a variety of spectacular performances that will thrill everyone.There is also a half-marathon and a fun-run being held on Sunday 4th August. Members from the Royal Forest of Dean Athletics Club may well be taking part.
The coach will take us from Coleford to St Hilaire de Riez and back, however, it will also be available for journeys whilst we are staying. This could be to the fantastic historical theme park called Puy De Fou.
The coach journey will consist of a three hour trip to Portsmouth, a six hour journey on a Brittany Ferries ship and then a five hour journey to St Hilaire de Riez.
The cost of the coach and ferry travel is only £190 for CTA members and £205 for non-members.
Details of membership can be found in the Association pages. However, individual membership is £10 per year.
Bookings must be received by 31st March. Get your cheques in early to avoid disappointment.
We would prefer payment by cheque, payable to Coleford Twinning Association. Cheques or cash can be paid in at the Tourist Information Centre in Coleford.
