Reminiac annual Newsletter

Annual Newsletter

Every five years the mayor carries out a population census of the inhabitants of Reminiac. The results are published in the mayor’s annual newsletter, ‘La vie communale’.

When the census began in 1911 there were 693 people living in Reminiac. Since then, at EVERY census the population of our small rural village has declined. There are now just 341 people living in Reminiac.

In just 100 years the population has halved.

Of course there are reasons for this, farms are becoming larger and are less labour intensive so naturally people are migrating to the towns and cities to find work.

But, what will become of rural life in 100 or 200 years?, Will it disappear?, Eventually will we all live in towns and cities?
