[Objet : Twinning Celebrations]
I wish to thank you for such an unforgettable weekend of celebrations. Everything seemed to go so smoothly, and there was evidently a huge amount of planning and preparation. The warmth, hospitality and friendship of the people of Beaupréau was quite overwhelming, and I look back fondly over many happy years of twinning with your wonderful town.
The dragon, in situ, was one of the most breathtaking sculptures I have ever seen, and the history of the tree only makes it the more remarkable.
Now we have the hard but exciting task of devising a plan and a programme for next Easter here in Abergavenny. At present everybody is very enthusiastic and we must use this to good effect.
Perhaps you would email me the precise dates of your stay next Easter, in order that we can advise everyone who might be involved.
Most importantly, would you please thank everybody who worked so hard behind the scenes to make our experience so perfect: the host families, your own town council, your twinning committee, and of course the Football Club of Beaupréau.
A meeting in the Autumn to discuss next year would be a great help, especially if by then you had a rough idea of numbers (or even just the number of coaches, including your talented band perhaps) Give us a date and we will make sure it is kept clear, and that all those involved at this end are aware and available. If you decide to fly we can pick you up from Bristol or Birmingham.
Once again thank you for a such a splendid and unforgettable time,
Kind regards to all,
