A STALWART of the Royston and District Twinning Association has been awarded honorary membership.
The award to Bob Cunnington came during the association's annual meeting.
Bob played a key role in the association's French link with La Loupe 21 years ago.
He visited two towns in France which were seeking twinning with Royston and returned to recommend to Royston Town Council that the link should be with La Loupe.
And from then he has been on almost every town twinning visit to La Loupe in the past 20 years.
Association chairman David Gray said Bob had been a "great supporter" of twinning over the years.
