Suns of winter at Angers' heart

Few by few, components of the event "Suns of winter" are arriving in Angers down town. After Christmas and New Year illuminations were set up in the streets, it was the turn of the wooden huts to take place in the streets and squares around the Angers centre. On the occasion of its 2011 edition, Angers town hall wanted it more traditional. But, the city chose, for the first time, to deal it with a private company instead of the shopkeepers association.

This change displays the will of the municipal team to use the Christmas and New Year periods to make the Angers down town, the first commercial centre of the territory, more attractive. And this year a good idea has taken place with the openings of stores for shopping till 9 pm on Saturday 3 and Friday 9, 16 and 23 December. In order to stimulate the attractiveness of the place, all the parking lots of Angers down town will be free as trolley and buses for all persons coming there with an Irigo subscriber. 

After years of works on the first trolley line which hampered the business of Angers down town retail stores, it was fair to help them recovering turnover. Aside this, the event will not forget Angers inhabitants weakened by the economic slowdown. Actions aiming at giving them parcels in spite of their scares resources will take place, making of the event a real sun in the winter of life.
