Two coaches set out from Hebden Bridge on the 29th May 2014 for a very memorable trip to St Pol to commemorate 35 years of twinning. The party included not only longstanding members of the HBTS but also a range of musicians from Hebden Bridge  who delighted their French hosts with their music.

Midgely Fête 13th June & Mytholmroyd Gala 27th June 2015.

The HBTS had very successful tombola & preserves stalls at delightful Midgely Fête and exciting Mytholmroyd Gala! The programme of traditional events at Midgely was most entertaining while Mytholmroyd had great music and a diversity of stalls. Taken together we raised £309 for the HBTS & we were able to talk to a lot of people about twinning.

Celebration of the first 50 years of twinning between St Pol and Warstein - Jubiläumfestwochenende. 

The celebrations of the first 50 years of twinning between St Pol sur Ternoise and Warstein continued in St Pol between the 8th and 10th May 2015. The programme included a visit to Notre Dame de Lorette to see the new memorial to all the dead of the 1st World War who fell in the departments of the Nord and Pas de Calais. At the heart of the celebration was the reaffirmation of the charter of twinning between St Pol and Warstein.

Following the initial celebration in May, the main event in regard to the 50th anniversary of the original twinning of St Pol and Warstein took place in Warstein on the 30th and 31st August. Our friends in Warstein worked hard to make the event both successful and enjoyable.
