Welwyn Hatfield mum looking to host French teens

A MUM is looking for help to find families across Welwyn Hatfield happy to host a French teenager this summer.

Panshanger woman Sarah Saurigny moved from her native France 11 years ago and is keen to give youngsters the chance to learn a new culture.

The scheme has been running for a few years with students coming over to spend a fortnight studying and living in the area.

Sarah, a mum-of-two, said: “I would really like these children to have a wonderful experience being able to appreciate the differences between the two cultures.”

Families will be expected to provide breakfast, a packed lunch and an evening meal as well as a bed and will be paid �189.80.

They will pay for their own transport and will study English at Oaklands College each morning, before taking part in planned activities each afternoon, before returning to their host families at around 5.30pm.

Sarah, 39, from Wellington Drive, WGC, added: “We hope this is a chance for working parents to still be able to join in.

“It would be nice if the families had children of a similar age, but this is not essential.”
