    Come with your gloves, boots or old shoes and the association's volunteers will show you their know-how. In a relaxed and warm atmosphere, you will be able to participate in the rebuilding of this lock with its flowery name ("le creux du cul"). As a bonus, explanations will be given on the functioning of these key works of the local heritage.
