A celebration of singing was the latest event to mark the 25th Anniversary of Horwich’s twin town agreement with Crowborough.
Andrew Morley who is a member of the choir at Horwich Parish Church, travelled to Crowborough to sing with the choir of All Saint’s Parish Church.
It is the first time that members of the two twin town Parish Church choirs have sung together. Mr. Morley was welcomed by the Reverend Andrew Cornes and former Mayor of Crowborough Paul Scott who signed the original twin town agreement in March 1990 with the then Mayor of Horwich.
The agreement was renewed earlier this year at special ceremonies in Horwich Public Hall and Crowborough Town Hall.
Andrew Morley said:
I received a fantastic welcome from all of the congregation at All Saint’s Parish Church. It is the first time that I have visited Crowborough but I will most definitely return. We now hope that members of the choir in Crowborough will travel up to Horwich to sing with us at Holy Trinity Church and that the two choirs singing together will become a regular event. It is another new relationship which has been formed in this anniversary year of twinning.
