Many of the students at Nyon’s Gymnase (high school) returned to their studies on Monday 8th June and although the school is still not operating at full capacity, the presence of the students has made the town feel a lot busier.
Elsewhere, there are other signs of life around the town, the cinema is now open, the infamous “cinema cat” has been waiting patiently for for film lovers to return – see photo below. The next Monday Movie in English on Monday 15th June will be “Peanut Butter Falcon”
