Chance to make new friends here and abroad with Fenland Twinning Association

The Fenland Twinning Association is kick-starting the New Year with a drive for more members to strengthen its ties in Germany and Australia.

Roger Coulthurst, the association’s chairman, said he would love to see more people getting involved with the group in 2020, particularly families who like to travel

and make new friends.

“We are looking forward to a twinning visit to Stadt Nettetal in Germany at the end of August,” said Roger. “We have been invited to join them as they celebrate their 50th year as a region and would especially like more members, including families, to join our Association and come along with us.

“It’s not necessary to speak German, as many of the Stadt Nettetal members have excellent English. All that’s required is a sense of adventure and desire to make new friends.”

Anyone interested in joining the Association, or finding out more, is invited to a Tea Party on Wednesday, January 23. It is being held in the Council Chamber at Fenland Hall, County Road, March, at 5.30pm.

The link with Australia, despite the distance involved, is well established through occasional exchange visits and regular correspondence. However, the Association’s

most active link is with Stadt Nettetal, with exchange visits taking place every other year. When visits are made to Fenland, members are asked to host individuals or families and join in with the events planned to make their visit more memorable.

“These visits are great fun, and have established many close and lasting friendships over the years,” said Roger. “Anyone interested in getting involved should come along to our Tea Party and AGM on January 23. Everyone is welcome!”
