Torpoint and District Twinning Association held an
Terry Fry chairman of the Twinning association introduced Rachel Evans who is just starting her second year as Mayor of Torpoint.
Members admired the wonderful the mural depicts the Cornish and Breton Flag. Plus the lighthouse in Bénodet and the Torpoint Ferry. In the background is depicted the frigate complex at Devonport Dockyard and the bridge crossing the river Odet, Before this bridge was built there was a ferry crossing between Bénodet and St Marine. Paulene was presented with a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
Then we moved to view the white roses planted in memory of John Carter who was first treasurer of Twinning. Terry told how John had organized the red telephone box sited in Torpoint corner in Bénodet. Plus put together our first charter.
Lastly we attended to view the bird bath which has been sited in memory of Dave England. Doreen England poured water in to it on our behalf. Dave was founder member and first chairman of Twinning, without him Twinning wouldn’t be in existence. It was Dave’s suggestion to the local council that we should be twinned with a town in France that set the ball rolling and a public meeting was held, from that meeting the first committee was formed.
worked to get this ready, together with Refreshments which were appreciated by all.
