Town twinners sign Spanish agreement
MEMBERS of Royston’s twinning association cemented the town’s links with Spain with a special ceremony in Villanueva de la Ca�ada.
A party flew out last week to sign the formal twinning agreement as well as touring the sites that the region, located just north of Madrid, had to offer.
The town’s mayor Cllr Robert Inwood was among those who flew out for the ceremony.
“We have a proud tradition of twinning for nearly 40 years in Royston and I am sure that our link with Villanueva de la Ca�ada will blossom and flourish in the future,” he said.
He was joined by his wife and others, including Adrian Jones, the chairman of Royston and District Twinning Association, and Jane Dottridge, who was responsible for the Spanish link.
