“There was a bit of a drawback, in that he didn’t speak a word of English!” Clare Wichbold remembers

Clare Wichbold remembers a tricky incident during an exchange programme set up by the local councils of Herefordshire and the Pays de Gatine, a rural area similar to Herefordshire, south of Brittany.

 

After a successful visit by the Herefordians, the French visitors, including several livestock farmers, came to Herefordshire. Visits to the Cathedral and Cider Museum were enjoyed, and a lunch of Herefordshire produce at All Saints Café was planned. Then one of the visitors, a cattle farmer, asked to see a cattle sale.

 

Speaking no English, he needed an interpreter, and Clare looked up just at the wrong moment and was dragooned into help! See the video for Clare’s story.
