Last Friday evening Paul and I joined the rest of the villagers to attend the traditional ceremony given by the Marie and the Commune. This is a lovely get together where the Marie explains what has been achieved in Daglan in 2017 and what is planned for 2018. The highlight for us was news of the award of a second flower. The Floral town/village label is awarded each year by the National Council of Towns and Villages in Bloom (Couseil National des Villages et Villages Fleuris) after the council agrees that the village/town meets certain criteria, such as landscape and plant heritage, floral displays, respect for the natural environment and living environment. Last year Daglan was awarded one flower, this year we have earned two flowers. Congratulations to all who participate and making our village so beautiful.
The above sign shows the one flower currently on the signs which are positioned at the entrances to the village.
The list below shows all of the activities that you can join in Daglan.
You will no doubt agree that it is quite impressive for a small village.
Afterwards there was an aperitif dinatoire, which is an evening buffet which unfortunately we were no able to attend.
Apologies for the quality of the pictures, they were taken on a new mobile phone camera, first time used inside. We will know next time to take along our old camera.
