Radcliffe-on-Trent Twinning Association commemorated 20 years of friendship with a visit to Bussy-Saint-Georges in March.
Eighteen members of the association were welcomed by their French hosts and treated to an excursion to Meaux, followed by an anniversary reception.
The parish council was represented by David Barton, who made a formal presentation of a commemorative candle holder to the Mayor of Bussy-Saint-Georges.
The commemorative candle holder was inspired by Radcliffe-on-Trent’s village sign, originally commissioned and donated by Radventures.
The candle holder was designed and manufactured by local company Great British Outdoor Fires, managed by Radcliffe residents Tony and Kate Cox.
This family-run enterprise produces laser-cut metal objects, ranging from candle holders to fire pits, with clients able to choose either customised or off-the-peg designs.
