A group of 55 French business students enjoyed a day trip to Bexhill last week.

The 18 to 22 year-old students from Reims visited the iconic De La Warr Pavilion (DLWP) and had traditional English cream teas at the award-winning Di Paolo’s restaurant on Thursday (December 10).

The 1066 Federation of Small Businesses chairman Brett McLean accompanied the party from the south of France.

He spoke to them about his various community roles and why he is regarded as a ‘serial entrepreneur’.

DLWP chief executive Stewart Drew gave the students a guided tour and potted history of the famous modernist building that celebrated its 80th birthday on Saturday (December 12).

Their teacher Alain Atou said: “The students were very impressed with the talks given by Brett and Stewart and could not stop talking about the visit to Bexhill.”
