Dzierzoniow Friendship Agreement

A five-person delegation from Dzierzoniow in Poland visited Nantwich to formalise the Friendship Agreement between the two towns over the weekend of Holly Holy Day.

The agreement was first put in place by the former Crewe and Nantwich Borough Council back in 2005.

Mayor of Nantwich Cllr David Marren said: “I am delighted our friends from Dzierzoniow are here to formalise our friendship agreement which was approved by the Town Council in March 2016”

“Our agreement aims to develop cultural, educational, sporting and recreational links for mutual benefit particularly through exchange visits and tourism and I know through my own experience that It will give young and old an opportunity to share ideas, views, experiences and to build new connections and friendships.”

Dorota Pieszczuch, Deputy Mayor of Dzierzoniow, said: “We have really appreciated our invitation to Nantwich and have been captivated by the town’s beauty and character.

“I am so pleased we saw the re-enactment of the Battle of Nantwich, it was wonderful.

“In the spirit of partnering, I cordially invite citizens of Nantwich to visit us in Dzierzoniow where you will be warmly welcomed with affection.

“I would love to see Nantwich businesses displaying at our May Trade Exhibition called “Dzierzoniow Days and also in August at our Honey Harvest Fair.

“Mayor David Marren and I are also very committed to developing pen friending opportunities for young people and this is a project we will be taking forward together over the coming years.”
