Residents of the Great Yarmouth area are being invited to the general meeting of the Great Yarmouth Twinning Association on Wednesday, March 22, at 7.30pm.
The meeting at St Nicholas Priory School Hall is an opportunity to hear about Great Yarmouth's successful twinning with the French town of Rambouillet and past experiences and intentions for the future.
Light refreshments will be provided at the meeting and the group's chairman, John Stephens, will give a piano performance of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue.
Car parking is available in the Market Place car park.
The twinning agreement was originally signed in 1956. The idea of twin towns was to foster friendship and understanding between European nations, in an effort to forge links and mutual understanding.
