The Sunday following the Paris Terrorist Attacks I saw that the flag at the Sporting Club was flying at half mast. I thought this was a wonderful and thoughtful response to what had occurred in Paris.
I sent a message to a French colleague, Etienne Frank, and I told him that we all felt a sense of great sadness and solidarity with the French people and this was reflected in the flag flying at half mast.
Etienne wrote back and said: “We and I am very touched by your compassion. I allowed myself to drop a word and a candle to Paris in memory of the dead on the part of inhabitants of your small town BINGARA.”
The note Etienne left at the memorial in Paris reads; ‘Deepest sympathies from BINGARA to Paris’.
Etienne Frank, colleague of Ken Davey, paid respects to the victims of the Paris attacks, on behalf of Bingara by leaving a note as pictured.
A BIG WELL DONE to the Sporting Club; very very classy: And a BIG WELL DONE and thankyou to Etienne; he’s a classy guy.
