Town twinning is still alive and well
SIR – As chairman of Sidmouth Twinning Circle, I write in response to Mr Coleman to reassure readers the town twinning with Le Locle is indeed still alive, despite the loss of the town entry signs.
SIR - As chairman of Sidmouth Twinning Circle, I write in response to Mr Coleman to reassure readers the town twinning with Le Locle is indeed still alive, despite the loss of the town entry signs.
(What's happened to the sign? Herald, February 8)
A group of 18 people from Sidmouth and the surrounding area visited Le Locle last September and were most warmly welcomed. We look forward to receiving guests from Le Locle here in a year or two's time.
During this year, the Twinning Circle is planning a programme of meetings, both social and cultural, the first of which will be at the Blue Ball, Sidford, on Thursday April 10, at 7pm.

This, like all events on our programme, will be advertised in the Herald as they occur, and the council newsletter (available from council offices or from the library in March) will carry a short article. We warmly invite anyone interested to get in touch either with me on (01395) 514906, or to contact the membership secretary on (01395) 512981.
I would also add that no, we haven't forgotten the matter of the signs! Representations have been made to the council about this and, as three members of the town council serve on our committee, we are quite hopeful!
