Teacher, Dany Bosek taking pictures
of the students receiving their coins from me

Once again, all the staff and stallholders at Hungerford Arcade were very proud to welcome 57 students and four of their teachers, Dany Bosec, Laurence Tondeur, Carole Coudray and Emmanuel Isnard from their school in Hungerford's twin town Liguiel in France. They had a wonderful time at the Arcade and each student was 
presented with a pouch containing an old English coin with a slip telling them what the old coinage was and what its equivalent would be in today's money.  They loved exploring all the nooks and crannies of the building (of which there are many) and admiring some of the fabulous antiques that caught their eye. They said that they had a marvellous time in the town and also visited the local school, John O'Gaunt and made friends with their fellow students.
Beautiful picture of student having fun
Dany Bosec, the teacher who once again organised this trip to Hungerford with Penny Locke, told me that this was a five day trip and that they had just returned from a wonderful time in Wales.  Today they are in Hungerford and tomorrow they will be visiting London before returning home to France.
