Video: Signing the Twinning Charter - 1960


ASHBY-DE-LA-ZOUCH
is a market town of some 15,000 inhabitants situated in the very heart of England in the county of Leicester with Burton-on-Trent to the west, Derby to the north, Nottingham to the north-east, Leicester to the south-east and Birmingham and Coventry to the south.

PITHIVIERS lies in the centre of the département of the Loiret some 60 miles south of Paris and 30 miles north-east of Orléans. It is quite similar to Ashby as a market town with important local industries, such as sugar and pharmaceuticals and this, of course, is why the two towns selected each other for twinning. It has a largely autonomous municipal authority and is the seat of a deputy-prefect.

IN 2010 WE CELEBRATED THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE TWINNING IN ASHBY-DE-LA-ZOUCH AND IN 2011 WE CELEBRATED IT IN PITHIVIERS.

We welcome new members and invite those visitors to our site who have not yet joined us to look through these pages to get a flavour of the varied and interesting activities of our association and, indeed, to join us.
