Mayor to host Gala Night to mark milestone Twinning Anniversaries with Traunstein and Bondues

The Mayor of Haywards Heath is delighted to announce that he will host a Grand Twinning Anniversary Celebration Gala Night at Borde Hill Gardens on the evening of Saturday 30th June 2018.

The evening will be a fabulous night of food, fun and entertainment to mark the 20th anniversary of Haywards Heath’s twinning with Bondues in France and 25 years of twinning with Traunstein in Germany.

Cllr Knight comments “This will be a true community event to mark these special historic anniversaries and to celebrate the wonderful friendships that formed over the years with our twin towns. We are fortunate to having a wonderful Twinning Association in our town who actively encourage the relationships we have with Bondues and Traunstein.

My sincere thanks to our generous sponsors and partners. The event will raise funds for my charity, the Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity which provides such vital work for young children and families affected by cerebral palsy.

I hope the whole community of Haywards Heath will join with me in celebrating these milestone anniversaries and I look forward to seeing many of you at the event.”

The event has been made possible by our sponsors, Fairfax Properties, CSL Behring, Business Pulse, Connections Radio and Hilton Sharp and Clarke and Borde Hill Garden have kindly provided their beautiful venue to celebrate this event in delightful surroundings.

Town Twinning started in Europe after the second world war to encourage people from Europe to meet, mix and get along and to repair relationships damaged during the war and to encourage trade and tourism. Twinning in Haywards Heath has created many beautiful long-lasting friendships and involved school exchange trips and visits. Tickets are available at and cost £50.00.
