Sober and civilised

In reply to your online article about the [alcohol-free] L’Arbre qui marche festival in St.Martin du Bois (49): I live on the road that leads to the festival car park and the numbers of very polite young people who walked past whilst I was in the garden, all with a polite bonjour or bonsoir, was a delight. 

There were no problems and not a single Gendarme to be seen.
