THE village square in Villefranche-du-Périgord is currently covered with lines of fluttering paper flowers, all ready to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the parents' association for the school.
The Amicale Laïque de Villefranche-du-Périgord is marking its special birthday on Saturday 29 July, with an afternoon and evening of music, a photograph exhibition, horse rides and plenty more, with a disco long into the night.
The celebrations are open to all and with the flowers in the sky, plus the village halle and arcades as a backdrop, it is likely to be a 45th birthday to remember.
