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.
