MORE than 30 twinners from the French town of Dourdan made the trip across the channel to meet up with their Dunmow counterparts in London.

Chairman of the Dunmow Twinning Association Tim Guyer, who greeted the French contingent when they arrived in the capital on Saturday, said it was wonderful day.

"We travelled by tube to the National Gallery for lunch before walking along Whitehall to Parliament Square and Westminster Abbey, then heading for Oxford Street. Some of the group also managed to see Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London," said Mr Guyer.

The evening before their trip to London, the Twinning Association held their annual meeting in Dunmow's Day Centre. Mr Guyer and David Barron were elected chairman and vice chairman respectively. They will work to further promote links between the two towns.

Former chairman Mike Bloomfield retired from the committee after many years of service.

"The full agenda will be discussed at our meeting in January, but the events we have planned already are a trip to France for a trade fair at the end of March and the French will be visiting us in May," said Mr Guyer.

"The Majorettes are trying to raise money so they can come to the fair as well. I am also particularly pleased that Dunmow St Mary's Primary School have made contacts with a school in Dourdan and visited the area earlier in the year.
