A very rich associative offer

A survey led with the federation, in 2010, gave us the opportunity to list the total of the sports club membership cards. The final result : 50 associations giving a sample of over 30 sports with 4 096 owning a licence, representing 38.85% of Lavaur’s inhabitants. If we take into account the members, this number overcomes 60%.

A regular involvement in the local actions

Since September, 1999, our local associative network get involved with the Local Education Contract. In 2010, 20 associations (that is to say, 40% of the Vaurean associations) got involved with the Libr’Action Juillet apparatus. This service represents 163 sessions, i. e. 424 hours and about 200 children and youth concerned.
