Members of Foxton Twinning Association have gathered to mark the installation of new signs recognising the twinning of the village with another in France.
The new signs at the village entrances recognise the partnership between Foxton and Montigny, near Rouen, in Normandy.
The twinning began in October 2016 developing from a longstanding, cross-channel friendship and has seen three annual exchanges since with more than 40 members of each community taking part in the visits.
"We are delighted that there is now a very visible recognition of the bond of friendship between the two communities," said association chair, Philip Atkin.
"Our partnership allows the two villages to share their local history and culture on a personal level and the visits that we have made and hosted have been a real highlight."
