A group from Gronau, in Germany, were treated to a civic reception at the Beehive on July 18 ahead of experiencing this weekend's Charter Day celebrations (July 20).

Councillor John Zarczynski, Honiton's mayor, said: "In May 2018 Honiton Twinning Group celebrated its 30 year anniversary during a visit to Gronau.

"As mayor I had the pleasure of welcoming our German guests at a civic reception that was well attended by members of Honiton Twinning Group, Honiton Town Council representatives, and Honiton Chamber of Commerce."

Members of the town's twinning association enjoy regular visits to both Gronau and the French town of Mezidon.
