North Walsham prepares for visit from possible French twin town

North Walsham is preparing to say 'bienvenue' to a party from the French town of St Paul Les Dax who are looking for an English twin.

Walsham has expressed an interest in exploring the possibility of twinning links with St Paul, a spa town of just over 12,000 residents in the south-west of France, close to the Pyrenees and the border with Spain.

The French group will be staying in Bury St Edmunds later this month and have been invited to visit North Walsham on February 27. Walsham has a long-established German twin, Friesenried in Bavaria.
