Farewell Pierrot Brinet – one of Epeigné's great characters

 Pierrot@the 8th May 2011 parade to  
commemorate the end of the 2nd World War

Very sad and sorry to hear that Pierrot Brinet, one of Epeigné-les-Bois' great characters, died suddenly yesterday morning. Pierrot had a great zest for life and sense of fun. He was a keen fisherman – often down at our lake and always ready with a warm and cheery greeting. He will be greatly missed. Our sincere condolences to Pierrot's family. 

I remember when the village had a band – sadly now long gone – he played the cymbals. It was clear that his contributions were strictly rationed. He and his fellow player were only allowed to join in on one or two tunes during a concert!
