Royston Volunteer Centre manager Denise Graham’s regular look at the voluntary sector in North East Herts
Royston first embraced the concept of town twinning way back in 1974.
It’s all about bringing people together and creating opportunities for citizens of member towns to experience and explore other cultures.
A wealth of fun and friendship has grown up over the years between Royston and its three twin towns – Großalmerode in Germany, La Loupe in France and Villanueva de la Cañada in Spain.
Regular twinning visits and exchange trips take place in association with links between families, particular groups in the town such as Royston Town Band, sports groups, and the parish church.
