Cirencester has a long tradition of twinning and friendship with the towns of Itzehoe, near Hamburg, Germany and St-Genis-Laval, a suburb of Lyon, France. Throughout the year various exchange visits take place and from time to time formal anniversary celebrations and civic receptions are held.
Representatives from Cirencester travelled to Itzehoe in the Spring to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the German town’s twinning with La Couronne in France and the actual 775th anniversary of the founding of Itzehoe. For more details of the visit and the packed itinerary provided please refer to the latest Twinning Newsletter now available – see contact below.
