good news is that the Village d'entreprises of festival fame is alive
and kicking. After a few doubting moments, its organisers are heaving
a sigh of relief, and with its new festival position (in the Place Laennec)
it's a prime site for visitors. Those who missed it missed an opportunity...
Barré (the only non-Finisterian company among exhibitors, making Val
de Rance cider) came from the Loire-Atlantique with his muscadet. He
was there last year too. "Yes this is a great site. We'll easily beat
last year's numbers."
There are also fabrics from Le Villec, and pottery from Henriot decorating the various stands. Patrick Saille (from I Comme) rubs his hands with glee: it is his company who had the job of making the Village a success, and he has seemingly carried off what might have been a risky challenge. "Our initial researches show that the number of visitors is well up on last year." On Wednesday between 10.00 am and 15.00 pm there were 4,000 visitors - it looks as though the Village d'entreprises has a sunny future!
