Saffron Walden will welcome a delegation from its twin town - Bad Wildungen in Germany - in August.

The group will visit between August 10 and 14 and have a packed schedule planned, including a food tour of the town with Rachel Hewlett and a historical walking tour with Cllr James de Vries.

They will also visit Audley End House, Audley End Miniature Railway, Saffron Grange, St Mary's Parish Church and Fairycroft House.

A group of nine Saffron Walden residents previously visited Bad Wildungen in September 22.


Mark Starte, duty manager of Saffron Walden Tourist Information Centre, said: "It is important to keep links alive with our European friends and to try and continue the good work of the many people who have been involved in twinning over the years.

"I would like to see this relationship develop with cultural exchanges, particularly involving young people."
