Warminster to welcome Flers visitors for exciting town twinning event

24 April 2024

Warminster will welcome 31 visitors from Flers for a town twinning event between Friday 26th April and Sunday 28th April.

Warminster has been twinned with the town of Flers in Normandy, France, since 1973. Visits have been made each year alternately between the two towns and strong friendships have been formed between host families.

The invited visitors will meet at The Old Bell, Market Place, for a breakfast brunch on Saturday 27th April including a traditional display of Morris dancing. Cllr Stacie Allensby, the Deputy Mayor will formally welcome the Flers friends ahead of a weekend of entertainment.

Cllr Stacie Allensby said:

It will be and honour and pleasure to welcome our Flers guests for what is set to be an exciting weekend, as we strengthen our ties with the Flers community.”

At 12.30pm the group will depart for an afternoon coach trip to Salisbury. On Sunday 28th April, there will be a concert at Minister Church followed by tea and cakes.

The town twinning event will conclude with a formal dinner and dance until late at the Civic Centre with local band ‘Amjam’ providing the entertainment.

French flags will be flying across Warminster to welcome visitors from Flers. The flag of England recently appeared above shops across the town for St George’s Day on Tuesday 23rd April.
