Two months after the floods, Leuc bakery opens
Marie-Pierre and Christophe Rodriguez have finally managed to open their bakery business in Leuc, two months after the floods. Leuc, Aude, is a small commune of 820 inhabitants, and during the floods the bakery was a metre deep in water.
Thanks to the solidarity of the inhabitants, they sold 200 christmas logs on their first day of opening, a feat unthinkable two months ago as they surveyed their ruined machinery.
The bakery was saved by a cheque from the Chambre des Métiers and financial support from the Rotary Club. Repairs were made on several machines. “Some machines still do not work, but we’ll deal with that later,” said the baker. "For now I'm very relieved and grateful for all the support we have had.”
The rest of the repairs will be done when they receive their insurance money.
This bakery is the only one in the village of Leuc, so it has been badly missed by the villagers.
20 families are still unable to return to their homes in Leuc, and are living in temporary accommodation.
