Brittany Communal Newsletter

Reminiac's Newsletter

In January every household in France receives a newsletter from their local mayor.

This newsletter contains the minutes of all the official town hall meetings with the elected delegates. There is absolutely no confidentiality. If a matter is raised it is minuted!

The commune budget is also disclosed along with the reasons for the small deficit !!.. In one commune the photocopier broke and three pages of the mayors newsletter was dedicated to justifying the cost of a new €3, 474.16 photocopier !!..

The newsletter also notes the births, marriages and deaths withing the commune over the past year and finishes with photos of all the local clubs, the fishing club, the old peoples club, the keep fit class and, would you believe it, Reminiac even has a ‘Fete Committee’ !!

I am now fully up to speed on the News of Reminiac ..
