Fenland residents are being encouraged to take up twinning as part of a drive to strengthen links with other international countries.

The Fenland Twinning Association wants to recruit more members, including for a visit to Germany and association chairman Roger Coulthurst has said families who like to travel are also welcome.

Roger said: "We are looking forward to a twinning visit to Stadt Nettetal in Germany at the end of August.

"We have been invited to join them as they celebrate their 50th year as a region and would like more members, including families, to come along."

The group has established a link with Australia through occasional exchange visits and regular correspondence.

Roger added: "These visits are great fun and have established many close and lasting friendships over the years."

A tea party and an annual meeting will take place at Fenland Hall on County Road, March at 5.30pm on Wednesday, January 22 and everyone is welcome.
