The twinning of Tramore with the French town of Cadaujac should be finalised by the end of October.
That was confirmed at Tramore Town Council’s September meeting by Mayor Ann Marie Power after Cllr Tom Raine, chairman of the local twinning committee, reported on progress to date.
Delegations from both towns exchanged visits during the summer and things seem to have gone swimmingly. So now it has been decided to progress the twinning to a conclusion.
Cllr Raine said a public meeting would be organised for the purpose of involving the community at large, particularly the youth within it. A date for that would be set when the committee meets next Wednesday, he said
The idea would be for clubs, societies, schools and individuals to link up with their French equivalents and build contact in that way. A joint Face Book page had been set up and he was in contact almost daily with people in France.
Mayor Power said a youth committee would be established because it was all about the youth.
Cllr Joe Conway advised that the next year would be make-or-break for the project as the real challenge was in selling it to the community and the level of its involvement would be a vital factor.
The Mayor agreed that energy levels needed to be maintained at a high pitch.
