Last Tuesday evening saw the amalgamating of both Fordingbridge Rotary and the Fordingbridge Twinning Association. It manifested itself as a joint meeting, with Alison Ayling, Chairman of Fordingbridge Twinning Association giving a talk about Twinning and Vimoutiers (Fordingbridge’s twin town in Normandy, France), all culminating with a formal invitation from Camembert Rotary (a suburb of Vimoutiers) to join the Town’s celebrations next July, of the 40th anniversary between the joining of Fordingbridge and Vimoutiers. The evening was introduced by President Will Peak and David Hales, followed by Alison Ayling, Chairman of Fordingbridge Twinning. Rotary was honoured by the attendance of Helen Tague (recently voted “Citizen of the year”), who is now President of Fordingbridge Twinning Association.
