THE Buntingford Twinning Association wants to set up a summer language school - and send youngsters to Spain as ambassadors. Mary Deeks, secretary of the Olvega town-twinning committee, said: "Twinning is all about encouraging people to appreciate other cultures and the opportunity for young people to possibly exchange visits, experience the Spanish life-style while improving their language skills." The first official visit from Olvega is likely to take place during Buntingford carnival week on June 22-25 and the committee's visit to Olvega is earmarked to take place in September.
