Signing of Twinning Charter between Gubbio and Huntingdon & Godmanchester -
Friday 19th April – Sunday 21st April 2013

On 19th April 15 members of HGTA and Civic Representatives went out to Gubbio, at the same time as a group of Students from our secondary schools accompanied by Di Gutteridge, for the Youth Sports Festival and the Civic Events.

On Saturday the 20th April, the Charter was signed in Gubbio in the Grand Hall of the Comune amidst great pomp and ceremony, with considerable public involvement.

On both occasions, all three towns exhibited positive, historical traditions and aspects of their communities. The public was engaged at every level and all sorts of possibilities for links were revealed, from youth activities to charitable associations, from senior citizens clubs to local crafts and products, from civic leaders to the ordinary man in the street.

Most important of all was the obvious development of very real friendships between the three towns and individuals. Now, the three towns and their Twinning organisations will be planning the way forward in order to ensure that we make the most of this opportunity for the sake of our residents.

It just remains to say a big thank you to the Civic Leaders of the three towns for their commitment and enthusiasm, and to the HGTA members for their hard work in providing an opportunity on this occasion for so many young people to engage in sporting and cultural activities.
