Men from Les Herbiers try Coracling

Following the very successful Custodians stand at the Food Festival some of the more intrepid visitors from our twin town, Les Herbiers, were introduced to the wonderful art of the coracle.   Paula demonstrated the technique then let them loose on the Severn.  With a few mishaps they did well and the only one who got wet was Paula rescuing Daniel Charrier off the rocks.  The photo shows his son, Martin, who is obviously a natural.  Another memory of Newtown for them to take back to France.Coracle 7
