On Thursday 5th December, we took a group of 102 – yes 102 pupils from Vale and Longshaw Juniors made the journey to Lille in Northern France to visit their Christmas Markets.
After some shopping and sampling the local delicacies such as Raclette and Crêpes, we headed over to J&P Chocolate Factory where we had a hands-on experience decorating our own chocolate and watching how Belgian chocolates are made.
We then headed to Flunch for a big group meal before making the journey back to Darwen, arriving back around 4am. I know I certainly slept that Saturday !!!
