George Freeman celebrates success of Watton’s twinning with Gernany’s Weeze
29th May 2012
Last week I was pleased to join religious leaders, dignitaries and councillors to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Watton’s twinning with the town of Weeze in Germany. This celebration was a perfect illustration of what twinning can achieve. By coming together, these two former RAF base towns have created an opportunity to celebrate the importance of the forces in the local community, promote good Anglo-German relations and inspire the next generation to think internationally whilst celebrating our heritage. In this Jubilee year, to see Watton's cadets and scouts parading with dignitaries from both towns made me feel very proud to be the MP for Watton. Our area is often neglected and this celebration was a reminder that we can put on a great show of what we're capable of when we work together.
