Welcoming the light with Mary the FaerieTown Twinning

Twinning is the establishment of a special relationship between two communities in different countries often with some physical, cultural and/or economic similarities. The relationship encompasses a wide range of activities including cultural activities, sharing of expertise, the creation of trade links, environmental action and the improvement of language skills. Twinning should enrich the life of the community and promote racial and religious tolerance, international understanding and respect for others.
