Nantwich is set to welcome visitors from Dzierżoniów this weekend to sign a new Friendship Agreement between the two towns.
The development of twinning links between towns in the UK and those in Europe began in the 1950s, with educational exchange visits often a key element of the agreements.
In recent years the mayor of Nantwich has been invited to participate in numerous twinning events and visits have been made to Germany and Poland.
The Crewe and Nantwich Twinning Association (CANTA) takes responsibility for the organisation of twinning activities with its counterparts in Bischofsheim (Germany) and Dzierżoniów (Poland).
Together they disseminate information, co-ordinate the provision of accommodation and organise functions and activities associated with official visits.
This visit incorporates a chance to promote the town and to show off one of its many popular events, The Battle of Nantwich, before the signing of the agreement on Saturday evening.
Mayor of Nantwich, Cllr David Marren said: “I’m delighted that we are coming together with Dzierżoniów to sign this Friendship Agreement, which can bring many benefits to our town and community.
“It will give young and old an opportunity to share ideas, views, experiences and to build new connections.”
The agreement aims to develop cultural, educational, sporting and recreational links for mutual benefit – particularly through exchange visits and tourism.
