VISITORS from Tulle, one of Bury's two French twin towns, have been over here this week.

A party of visitors from the town have been staying with families across the borough.

And, among the civic guests were a party of French student nurses, making a return trip after senior nursing staff from Bury Health Care NHS Trust visited Tulle last month. The nurses had lunch with their hosts from the trust on Wednesday and then toured the children's ward at Fairfield General Hospital.

The Tulle party enjoyed a variety of events during their five-day stay, including trips to Chester and a guided tour around Bury. They left yesterday (April 16), having arrived on Saturday.
