A MUSICIAL celebration highlighted 50 years of Leamington’s twinning with Sceaux in France.

More than 50 people, including the deputy mayor of Sceaux, visited the town to cement relationships.

It comes half a century after the original ‘memorandum of understanding and declaration of friendship’ was signed in 1969.

To celebrate a brass band played outside the town hall, where the memorandum was re-signed by councillors from Leamington and Sceaux to show ‘greater exchanger and understanding’ between the two towns.

A spokeswoman for Leamington Town Council said: “In celebrating the long lasting nature of this relationship for fifty years, the town council and Ville de Sceaux reaffirm the commitment to preserving and developing the friendship created for the benefit of all the people of their areas.”
