Just 12 months after the fishmonger, Poissonnerie Lacroix on rue Oberkampf, joined Le Carillon – a solidarity network of small business owners,  local residents, volunteers, associations and the homeless – it has won a major Economie Sociale et Solidarité (ESS) Trophy at the Hôtel de Ville on November 16 in the presence of Antoinette Guhl, deputy mayor and then one week later the Prix Coup de Coeur in the 11th arrondissement where Le Carillon was initially launched and piloted.

Since September Le Carillon has rapidly extended from the 11th to eight other arrondissements (10th, 19th, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 12th, 14th……) with more than 170 small businesses providing 20+ free micro-services to the homeless and people living in precarious situations.

On November 23, 2016 M. François Vauglin, mayor of the 11th arrondissement presented the ESS trophy sponsored by Mutuelle UMC to the Le Carillon team: Sean Ryan (Consultant & Ambassador and regular Expatriates Magazine contributor), Louis-Xavier Leca (Founder and Coordinator) and Guillaume Holsteyn (Coordinator).

mLaunched in November 2015 Le Carillon is a solidarity network of small business owners, local residents, volunteers, associations and people in need. Find out how you can get involved in this socially innovative and exciting Le Carillon movement by visiting www.lecarillon.org

Grumpy in Paris – 5 ways to beat the upcoming ‘winter blues’

Living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world has its many perks. A wealth of galleries, museums, delicious food, beautiful walks and a melodic language under no matter what context.

Here are some ways to beat those winter blues and enjoy the colder season ahead … […]
