A group of residents visited their town's partner town in Offenburg, Germany.

Members of the Borehamwood and Elstree Twin Town Association travelled to the German town to experience the annual wine festival and county show.

This is the second year the association has visited this annual event in Offenburg which is one of the highlights in the region with a wide range of music and entertainment.

Chairman of the association, Martine Eni said: "It is a pleasure to organise this visit to see and experience such a wonderful and colourful event, which is a credit to the area."

Borehamwood has been associated with Offenburg since the 1960's with regular school visits, with the official twin being forged between the two towns in 1982.

Over the years many different community groups have visited Offenburg, including Borehamwood Brass, Elstree & Borehamwood Rotary Club, and the local Scouting Groups, with St Michael's & All Angels Church forming an ecumenical link.

The partnership association organise yearly visit to both of Borehamwood’s twin towns, in Fontenay Aux Roses, in France, and Offenburg.
