Harpenden Friends of Alzey visit German twin town for 50th anniversary celebrations
Members from Harpenden Friends of Alzey travelled to the German twin town for a weekend of celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of the twinning of Harpenden and Alzey.
Alzey’s Town Council organised a series of events to celebrate 50 years of twinning with Harpenden.
The friendship between Harpenden and Alzey is a long established one and the first twinning events go back a long way with Harpenden and Alzey having been twinned since 1963.
Town Mayor Rosemary Farmer travelled with the Friends of Alzey to join in the celebrations.
John Lough, Chairman of the Friends of Alzey praised the efforts of the German organisers.
Mr Lough said: "We had a fantastic time. "It was a privilege to be part of these celebrations that were a reminder of the strong relations with Alzey that have been built up over the years."
The weekend included discussions of climate change challenges and visits to a wind farm outside Alzey and a solar power facility as well as a formal dinner with musical and film entertainment.
The Mayor of Alzey, Christoph Burkhard, presented the Friends of Alzey with a medal in honour of their contribution to relations between the two towns.
