Villagers enjoyed an Easter trip to their twinned town in France.

The Tickenham Twinning Association visited Aigné, just outside of Le Mans, where the group of 27 twinners learned more about the area through their host families.

The group travelled to Saumur in the Loire Valley for a guided tour where they enjoyed impressive views across La Loire.

Troglodyte caves - which were formed by the excavation of stone used in buildings and have been turned into visitor attractions - were explored, before the party were treated to a meal, washed down with an ample supply of wines of the Loire Valley.

The twinning association is actively looking for new members as there are families in Aigné waiting to be twinned.

The association is happy to welcome families from surrounding areas who are interested in joining.
