Craig and the BBC were very interested in finding out more about the things that Newtown Twinning Association is doing for the local community.
He also interviewed our French guests about the fantastic success that Les Herbiers have had in winning through to the final of the French cup against Paris Saint-Germain at the Stade de France on the 8th May!
Craig also had an opportunity to say goodbye to all the French Musicians who took part in the Fantastic joint weekend of Music partnered by Montgomeryshire Youth Music, Maldwyn Strings and Ffonic. The Performances at the Elephant and Castle on Saturday and at Newtown High School on Sunday evening were outstanding along with the cooperation between musicians and the new friendships formed!
Craig impressed the multi cultural members of Newtown Twinning and Comité de Jumelage by interviewing Alwena in Welsh, Andrew in English and Marie The in fluent French. He was then asked to join the Twinning Organisation! A BBC correspondent would be very useful!!
The interview was broadcast on BBC Radio Cymru Post Cyntaf programme with Dylan Jones and Kate Crockett on Tuesday the 1st May!
