Sidmouth Twinning Circle pulled out the stops this week to welcome visitors from the town’s ‘twin’.

Guests from Le Locle, Switzerland, arrived on Sunday for five days of activities to mark more than 30 years of international relations.

Businesses in the town decorated their shops red and white to welcome the visitors.

On Monday, the group was invited to a civic dinner by Sidmouth Town Council at the Kingswood and Devoran Hotel.

Sidmouth Steppers provided entertainment on the seafront before the visitors enjoyed a three-course meal.
