Photo Competition Results

Mark Reynolds, who judged the Twinning Photo 2010 Competition, announced the results at the 'Post-Trip' meeting on 17 September.  First prize went to Rick Boulton for an attractive photo of windmills.  Second was Alan Spiller, whose photo had a strong twinning theme - the signpost in Bad Salzdetfurth showing the names of its twinned towns.  A selection of new photos will be added to the website soon.

25 Years of Twinning

During the 2010 visit to Bad Salzdetfurth, Yate & District Twinning Association Chair, Ruth Boulton, presented an anniversary plate to Bürgermeister, Erich Schaper, to commemorate 25 years of Twinning.  It will be displayed in the Library, which is part of the KulturBahnhof (the modern station building which was opened in 2005).
