The Mayor of Recklinghausen, Christoph Tesche, has visited Preston and spoke at this week’s annual council meeting.
The mayor of Preston’s twin city said: “In the recent past alone, over 14 exchange programmes with over 400 participants were conducted between Preston and Recklinghausen. This way, genuine relationships and friendships between our towns and its citizens have grown. Grown from the bottom up, for the citizens and through the citizens.
“Through such encounters, prejudices are shed, mutual understanding arises for each other, horizons are expanded and friendships established.”
