Borehamwood and Elstree's twin town association took to the streets in France to promote the town overseas.

The twinning group visited the French twin town of Fontenay Aux Roses at the weekend to witness its annual festival and carnival.

The group also attended a reception to celebrate the town’s links in Europe, which span 40 years.

Martine Eni, chair of BETTA, said: “We took with us information from our town museum as well as promotional literature from Elstree & Borehamwood Town Council and relevant merchandise to sell to the people of Fontenay Aux Roses.”

"It was a privilege to be able to promote our town at such a prestigious festival.”

Former Mayor Councillor Clive Butchins also represented the town at an event to welcome the new Mayor of Fontenay Aux Roses, Laurent Vastel, into office.

Do the members of BETTA fund their trips to France from their own pockets or is there any council funding involved?

This visit was publicised at the begining of December in BWT, and was open to everyone. The association organised the accommodation and travel, to which ALL paid for the trip. The council didnot assist with any funding for this visit.

Your question is best answered by contacting EBTC formally not via this web portal.

If you had been at the Annual Town Meeting in April this information was given in their annual report.

BETTA is a community organisation run by volunteers to further the towns links with our two European partner towns, and works a an umbrella organisation to promote group visits to France and Germany, as well as promoting the town in Fontenay aux Roses and Offenburg.

As a seeker of truth I only asked a question and you obviously know the answer but are unwilling to post it here. Why is that?

I note that my last comment has been marked down by people who do not share my desire for truth and knowledge.

With respect, I still await an answer from Mr Grady or one of his fellow travellers to my funding question.
