French twinning visitors receive warm welcome

French visitors at the Edenbridge Motor Show

We were pleased to host visitors from our twinning town of Mont St Aignan in Normandy, France, over the weekend of 9-11 September. The Twinning Association was formed in 1973 to promote friendship and understanding between the two towns and its people.

During their visit, the group paid tribute to our late Majesty The Queen and observed a one minute silence.

As part of their trip, the Chairman of the Edenbridge Chamber of Commerce, Anita Black, kindly welcomed our French visitors to the Edenbridge Motor Show.

The Twinning Association will be celebrating its 50th anniversary next year. Find out more: Twinning Association – Edenbridge Town Council
