Pioneer of twinning association dies

A pioneer of the Todmorden/Bramsche Town Twinning Association has died.

Marianne Stolting was the first secretary for the link and completed 25 years of dedicated service. She was instrumental in developing the strong connection between the two towns. Throughout the years, she organised the annual visit to Todmorden and received and organised the Todmorden group in Bramsche. Marianne also helped to develop links between Todmorden and Bramsche secondary schools. The partnership between the towns remains strong and in 2018, they will have a special 40th anniversary celebration in Bramsche.
