Join Rushden’s twinning group

The Higham Ferrers Twinning Association is appealing for a new family to join the organisation.

A party of 33 visitors from Higham’s twin town of Hachenburg will be in England from July 26 to 29.

Gill Mercer, chairman of the twinning association, said: “The twinning arrangement costs the public purse nothing and has been going for 22 years. The twinners alternate each year between visits to Germany and to the UK.

“We are looking for a family who could accommodate either a couple and their teenage son or a lady with her granddaughter.

“Knowledge of the German language is not necessary.”
