Twinning Exchange

Hexham town twinners have just had a fantastic weekend in our German partner town, blessed with wonderful weather and an equally warm welcome from their hosts. On the Saturday morning Metzingen’s mayor Dr Ulrich Fiedler organised a civic reception in the town’s oldest building, the Pfleghof (photo taken outside). Despite the dark clouds of Brexit looming, the mayors and presidents of both towns reaffirmed their commitment to twinning and its continuing value.
