Guests from France recently enjoyed a visit to the offices of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.

The group from Vigneux-Sur-Seine was visiting the region as part of a trip organised by Limavady Twinning Association. The two areas have a long standing twinning connection.

Speaking afterwards the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Councillor Joan Baird OBE said: “Last year I was delighted to have the opportunity to travel to France with the Twinning Association where I saw for myself the benefits of taking part in a cultural exchange. I would like to thank Limavady Twinning Association for their commitment to the town’s twinning programme and I hope this latest visit was enjoyed by everyone involved. As a local government organisation it is always interesting to meet with our counterparts and hear about their experiences.”

The French delegation included Councillor Simone Poinsot, regional deputy Mayor, Monique Baillott, Councillor with responsibility for International Exchanges, Frank Leduc, Director of the Mayor’s Office and Councillor Joel Gruere, Chair of the Vigneux Twinning Committee.
