Superb weather greeted  a party of 30 Uppinghamians including Town Mayor Cllr Peter Rees this week, on the 2010 visit to Caudebec en Caux, Uppingham's twin town in Normandy, France. The party were warmly welcomed by Caudebec Mayor Bastion Coriton, who personally participated in a long weekend of friendship events.

Highlight of the programme was a  spectacular firework display, preceded by a superb fish meal, at the Normandy Discovery Centre. Gifts exchanged between Town Mayors included a beautiful glass plaque for Uppingham from Caudebec and a Town Flag and Uppingham First Mugs for Caudebec.
