The Bordeaux participants and their hosts met with the Lord Mayor (LM) in the Chapter House of the Cathedral on the 20th thanks to BBP volunteer Nell Dand who is also a guide at the Cathedral. The building was very quiet in the week following Easter. It all went splendidly as the LM, a former firefighter from Knowle West, got on well with the Bordeaux students. Dispensing with formalities, the LM chatted with the young people and then invited them over to see City Hall for a visit of the LM’s parlour and Council Chamber. The LM was delighted to see the Bordeaux student exchange continuing and wished it every success for the future. Certainly a day to remember for all the young participants and a big thank you to Nell and Vivien Brown as well as the LM and his staff.
