Twinners ready for anniversary

SIXTEEN members of Todmorden Town Twinning Association attended its annual meeting at the Golden Lion, Todmorden.

Mayor of Todmorden Coun Richard White chaired the meeting and a welcome and report on the year’s activities was given association chair, Sue Thornton. Reports were given by the treasurer, and Bramsche and Roncq section secretaries.

Last year the association took guests on several visits and hosted a barbecue in the garden of two of its members. They took the Three Valleys gospel singing group on the visit to Roncq and this proved a great success. Honorary officers remain the same and Sue Thornton begins a second year as chairperson.

This year is the 30th anniversary of the link with Roncq. In November special celebrations will be held. A small number, some from the original trip, will visit Roncq in May with the Mayor and consort.

There are still some places available on the coach for the Bramsche trip (June 1 to 9) - ring Phil Morton on 01706 812485 or 07740 704881 for more details. For more details on joining the association, ring Jill Bartram on 01706 815670.
