Jubilee Twinning Visit Success
Over the Bank Holiday weekend, the Epsom and Ewell Town Twinning Association entertained a large group of visitors from Chantilly, including the Deputy Mayor and members of the Chantilly Comité de Jumelage. It was in celebration of 25 years of the official signing of a Twinning Charter in 1995 and to join in some of the Jubilee excitement in the borough and the Derby, the visit having been postponed for two years due to the pandemic
There were some more official, commemorative moments, when The Mayor of Epsom and Ewell, Councillor Clive Woodbridge, and the Mayoress, Mrs Mary Woodbridge, joined for the planting of a European Oak tree in Rosebery Park, and a visit to Epsom Market Place to view the recently unveiled Derby Hall of Fame roundels which feature notable Derby winners, including 1965 winner..The roundel is a wonderful tribute to ‘Sea-Bird’ ridden by Pat Glennon and trained in Chantilly by Etienee Pollet, and who was the winner of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and the Derby, both in 1965.
