Stamford recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of being twinned with Vence, a medieval town which sits in the hills of the Alpes-Maritimes area of France.

John Polkinghorne, chairman of the Stamford and District Twinning Association, said the event last Friday night was attended by local guests and a group of 26 people from Vence.

Stamford was twinned with Vence in 1978 after Stamford town councillor Soni Cloudesley-Seddon, whose relative lived in the town, thought it would be a good idea to establish a link between the two places.
