Abertillery Twinned with Royat

Published: 10 May 2011

From the 6th to 10th May, 2011, I (as Clerk) and Members of this Council visited Royat to sign the Reciprocal Twinning Agreement between our Towns.

This was a very informative visit with an exchange of views and ideas for the sole purpose of fostering relations between Abertillery and Royat. Members of the Royal British Legion were in attendance to celebrate France's Liberation Day on the 8th May, also a number of schoolchildren and member of staff from Queen Street School and Abertillery & Blaina Lions (who met with their French counterparts).

It should be noted that Members and myself paid all our own expenses - there was no cost to the taxpayer.
