5th May An Historic Day for Europe
In a historic speech in 1946, Winston Churchill spoke of the need to build and maintain peace in Europe- a continent shattered by war and destruction. Three years later, on 5th May 1949, the Council of Europe was set up with the aim of uniting the diverse peoples of the continent around a set of common values.- democracy and the striving for peace between nations. Against the backdrop of this huge cultural movement, towns in Europe began to create their own modest links with their neighbours and the twinning associations were born.
As one of those groups, Ludlow French Twinning Association is pleased to be able to celebrate the establishment of the Council of Europe. We have severed our membership of the EU but regardless of our political beliefs, we are still Europeans.
