Information session about the ‘Circuit de l’abbaye’ in Potton
Do you know that 80% of the ‘Circuit de l’Abbaye’ walkers are mainly women and that 70% are 50 and over?
It’s been two years now since the ‘Circuit de l’Abbaye’ is in operation. So far, the 500 people who have undertaken the pilgrimage have enjoyed their experience.
On average, walkers spend 5 nights in the region. Some accommodations have welcomed more than 100 walkers in 2019!
Even with these positive statistics, the ‘Circuit de l’Abbaye’ team believes that there is always room for improvement and that municipalities that are part of this circuit can benefit more.
That is why Potton’s citizens are invited to an information and exchange meeting on Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Town Hall, 2, Vale Perkins Street, Mansonville.
