Echoing the news

"Flying saucers" in St-Phocas

No, of course, we are not going to "do that again" with the "flying saucers".

However, we must agree that this regional "affair" of celestial apparitions on the land of the district of Péronne, was only a vast scam to reality, but that, nevertheless, it left serious doubts in the minds of some people.

Thus, Tuesday evening, at the Flemicourt ball, a charming lady asked us most seriously in the world:

"You don't hide the truth in your newspaper?"


Since Sunday evening, the Peronne agglomeration has had its giant in the person of Phocas, patron of gardeners. This is thanks to the dedication of the members of the Santerre Bicycle-Club Committee, their lovely wives and, also, a host of friends who greatly contributed to this resurrection.

We suggested that Phocas illustrates each of the important regional events. So, we will think, perhaps, to present it in public at the next fair of Saint-Michel.

The traditional St-Michel fair promises to be even brighter than its predecessors, but despite the importance of the funfair, the Municipality is looking to set up an attraction likely to make the curious come.

It is too early to reveal this project, but we will probably be fixed in a few days.
