French exchange students were welcomed by Kendal Mayor Coun Sylvia Emmott as they came to the end of a week-long trip in the town.

Students from Saint Joseph School in Machecoul, western France, and their pals from Queen Katherine School (QKS) were treated to a talk about the history of the town during a visit to the Mayor’s Parlour.

In May, students from QKS will stay with their new French friends in Machecoul.
