2014 is the 20th anniversary of the Twinning links between our communities. So, what will be happening? It is Overton's turn to go over to France and already quite a few people have said they will be participating in the visit.
As always, we will be taking an official gift for the community and we are hoping to find something very special to mark the occasion. Should we make a banner? Or a sampler? Or maybe compile a book of local writing including poems, stories and songs? We have about eight months to get creative!
Various other ideas, such as a painting or a photograph come to mind though if anyone knows of any locally-produced artefacts that may be suitable, please get in touch. Whatever it is, it will have to be something that is fairly portable (as we have to get it to La Murette) and suitable for displaying in La Murette's Mairie (Town Hall).
We'd love to hear from anyone at all who has any brilliant ideas to share with us. Look forward to hearing from you!
