The playground, at the Pointe du Fao, in Huelgoat, is now called “ Louis prices ».
A plaque in the name of the founder of the lighthouse colony on the island of Batz, which was long owned by the Amicale laïque until its sale in 2017, was unveiled on Monday 22 November by his nephew Jacques Guillou in the Presence of members from the Amicale who financed almost all the games, elected officials, Thomas Lamour who did the layout of the plate and Hervé Masson who did the Breton translation of the text on the plate and municipal staff who helped set up the games.
At the service of youth
The mayor, Jacques Thépaut, recalled the story of Louis Priser, which was the origin of the transformation in 1945 of an old inn rehabilitated by friendly people into a summer camp so that the “local youth” could discover the sea.
Thousands of vacationers stayed there for 70 years until 2013. “Today, the municipal council members are in awe of your decision to allow the town and residence to benefit from the profits from the sale of the colony.” The Amicale also intends to participate in the financing of a BMX course in the city.
Professor on the island of Batz
Marie-Thérèse Bolan, for her part, reviewed the career of Louis Priser, born in 1913 and deceased in 2009. His first teaching position was on the Ile de Batz. He was later assigned to Huelgoat. A fervent defender of secular schools, he was the founder of the Ile de Batz summer camp and its leader for many years.
A lover of writing, he was a Telegram correspondent and author of books, including a trilogy about a rural world. “It is with great nostalgia and emotion that today we inaugurate this play area in tribute to Louis Priser for his commitment to the school and the municipality.”
