Twinning Visit to Saint Omer

Sarah with Henri Godart
One of our supporters Sarah Gleave was on the Deal town twinning delegation to Saint Omer last weekend. The visit marked Saint Omer's 40th anniversity of its twinning with Detmold in Germany and had a theme of 'Community and Sustainable Development'.

Deal With It manage to make links with like minded organisations on both towns - Agence-d'Urbanisme et de Developement Saint Omer and Klimaschutz-Beriat Detmold.

Sarah gave a presentation in french on voluntary work for a greener lifestyle and green tourism in Deal which was well recieved - there may well be an opportunity to share experiences in greater depth with low carbon voluntary groups in the partner towns next year.

The local produce on offer on our stand in the European Market in Saint Omer on Sat also generated interest from the European Centre for 'Slow Food'... so watch this space
