Town twinning started as a way of building strong community links across the European borders following the second world war.
Today, twinning in Charnwood sees these ideas thriving and developing with nine local twinning associations fostering links with fourteen vibrantly differing towns across Europe and India.
The current twinning associations all have very active social lives, with regular meetings to plan activities, and fund raising events to support their hospitality and overseas trips.
