‘Through the Eyes of the Partners’
On the 19th September 2019, the Mayor of Rushmoor visited Poland in order to officially recognise the newfound link to Rzeszow, Poland. The trip was an amazing experience to see how towns from cultures worldwide are run, helping us as a community to build stronger ties with our twinning towns.
The town of Rushmoor has partner towns around the world in;
- Meudon, France
- Oberursel, Germany
- Rzeszow, Poland
- Sulechow, Poland
- Dayton, Ohio, USA
- Gorkha Municipality, Nepal
According to https://www.rushmoor.gov.uk/internationalpartners
We have partner towns in order “build up cultural, educational and sporting links and partnerships between clubs, societies and schools in Rushmoor, with like-minded organisations in our partner towns. In more recent times, we have included business and economic links.”
We need these links as “they play an important part in building up our understanding of other countries and cultures and focus minds on our local history and economy.” they also “proide opportunities for residents and local businesses such as educational visits, perofrming in music or dance festivals, participating in sports tournaments, exchanges, business contacts and trde delegation visits”.
