The Local Outings Club
The Local Outings Club is for those members of the Association Des Amis who wish to discover or learn more about Central Brittany and its local heritage - history, religion, culture, customs, crafts and nature (landscapes, fauna, flora etc.). Francis Le Lay, who knows Central Brittany so well, suggests an interesting visit each month, with commentary provided by the owners or by highly-qualified specialists, in both French and English.
Since the start of the club in September 2016, varied outings have taken place such as:
St Pierre's Church and St Gildas's Chapel at Carnoët
the Church and Radio Kreiz Breizh broadcasting station at St Nicodème
Monsieur and Madame Chambry's modern farm at Duault
St Pierre's Church and the Menou biscuit factory (and its museum devoted to old shops)
Royden Jenkins's tree garden at Lohuec
Patrick Morin's Breton spaniel breeding farm at Keranlouan, Callac
the volcanic lava quarry of Milin-ar-Stang at Lohuec
the remembrance stone of Kerhamon at Duault
Martin Vaculik's organic farm at Lesmabon, Duault
Lohuec, the history of its former low furnaces and the remains of slag in the local forest.
The visits usually take place on Monday or Wednesday afternoons.

Next outing :
Thursday 5 December : visit to Michel Lozach, who is a beekeeper in Callac -
meet at 2:30pm in front of the town hall in Callac;
this will be a first visit when we will be able to taste various types of honey, followed by other visits in different seasons, the idea being that Michel Lozach will explain the different stages of the life of the bees and the work of a beekeeper throughout year.
