THE link between Royston and its German twin-town was described as "an enduring partnership".

Speaking at a reception on Sunday for a delegation from Grossalmerode, the Mayor of Royston, Cllr Lynn Berry, said: "The twinning between our two communities simply goes from strength-to-strength.

"Over the past 30 years it has become an enduring partnership," she said.

David Gray, chairman of the Royston Twinning Association, said after Grossalmerode had been given a red postbox there was now a "rumour" that it was looking for a British telephone box.

He said he could not provide one at the moment but presented Grossalmerode's mayor Andreas Nickol and town-twinning chairman Angela Fischer with a picture which had been embroidered by Pam Robinson.

During the visit the party from Grossalmerode went to Ely Cathedral and Windsor Castle.
