IS ARDFERT INTERESTED IN A TWINNING ARRANGEMENT?: There has been some interest in recent months by the small community of *Saint-Geniès-des-Mourgues* in South W est France in a twinning arrangement with the village of Ardfert. Representatives from Saint Genies are interested in gauging the level of interest in twinning with our historic village and are willing to set up an interim working group to assess the logistics involved. Saint Genies is located in the district of Languedoc-Roussillon, in the county of Hérault, in the arrondissement of Montpellier. Its location is more easily explained as being in the vicinity of Montpelier. The population is 1,608 (2008 census). Its inhabitants are called the Holy Genierois. Saint-Genies-des-Mourgues is located on one of the first folds of the Cevennes mountain range. The village is located 16 km north-east of Montpellier and 15 km from the Mediterranean Sea. The origin of the town dates from the year 1019 with the founding of an abbey dedicated to St. Genies. The Mourgues nuns give their name to the rest of the official village name. Village life has developed around the vineyards, quarries, orchards and cattle breeding. Anyone out there interested in developing this opportunity??? Please contact Steve Baker at Ardfert Print office in Ardfert beside the Post Office if interested.
