Jean-Paul Laborde

Jean-Paul loves strolling through the streets of the city centre, spending time at Rennes’ many markets, exploring the beautiful gardens and wandering along the banks of the River Vilaine and the Ille-et-Rance canal – all great ways to get to know Brittany’s capital.
During his working life, this retired PE teacher was a dab hand at showing groups of French, British and American students the four corners of the city, a skill that has stood him in good stead for his new role as a Greeter!
Jean-Paul loves meeting and getting to know people and is looking forward to making new acquaintances through the Greeters scheme.
He also speaks English.
