Spring 2013

MAY 23 IN LE VIGAN

The municipality of Vigan hosted in the town hall, around a glass of friendship and in the presence of the mayor and councilor general of the township Eric Doulcier and the local press, a couple of hikers come from far to experience the Chemin de Saint Guilhem.

He is an English teacher of Australian origin living in Hong Kong with a Spanish partner. They have already come to the south of France, which they appreciate very much and have traveled around the world for about thirty years. Peter worked, at one time with the James Bond, Sean Connery, and has published fourteen different works. He has been a journalist. The couple have adopted two Chinese children.

We are very happy to welcome them to this stage of the route and to get to know them better. In the evening, a barbecue is planned in the holiday village of La Pommeraie in the presence of members of a hiking association from Le Vigan and they will be guests of the town in a gite that night.

Before their arrival on May 23rd (6pm in the town hall of Vigan), date of their planned time in Vigan, we wish them an excellent hike on the St Guilhem in the rich and varied landscapes of our (yes we can say it ) beautiful territory. See you soon Peter and Carina!

THE 7 JUNE AT THE VIGAN

Roger CARRON, local manager of the CDRP (Comité Départemental de Randonnée Pédestre du Gard), and member of our association, carried out a very important work: Shooting, including aerial, footage of the route on Google- Earth and a short film on the Chemin de St Guilhem.

Our association has planned a presentation of this high-quality work on June 7, 2013 at the Maison du Pays du Vigan at 6 pm with actress Armelle Nouailles who will read texts on homelessness (with his charm and talent that we know ). It is also a nice opportunity to get to know the St Guilhem path and to exchange experiences with the public.

LES 21 & 22 JUIN

The migration fair at l’Espérou (commune of Valleraugue) is very popular with the families of the region. Our association will be there to broadcast our news, on a modest stand.

Pastoral farming, recognised by its inscription in the UNESCO world heritage, should continue and our association, member of AVECC (Association for the Valorisation of l’Espace (Space) Causse and Cévennes) Will be particularly involved in this.

So rendez-vous at Espérou on those days!
