Lyme Regis/Barfleur Twinning Association hold a bumper fund raising event ahead of the formal charter signing
Supporters of the Lyme Regis/Barfleur Twinning Association boosted their funds yesterday (Sunday) with a barbecue, raffle and boules competition.
The event was preparation for the visit by a group from the Normandy town of Barfleur next month when the twinning will be finalised by the signing of a charter in Lyme Regis.
Some 20 members and supporters of the association enjoyed the afternoon at Lyme Regis Football Club’s Davey Fort ground.
Chairman of the association, John Dover, said plans for the final stage of the twinning were well advanced, and the Barfleurais would be visiting Lyme Regis for a civic reception on September 20, with the formal twinning ceremony the following day.
