A presentation has been made to Crewe Town Council of gifts from the town of Crewe, Virginia (VA) in the United States of America.
Crewe Town Mayor – Councillor Tom Dunlop – was delighted to accept the gifts from former Mayor Diane Yates, who visited the United States recently on a holiday with her husband, Simon.
Both Crewe towns have been exchanging communications for several years and Mayor of Crewe VA, Phil Miskovic, has previously visited Crewe on a visit in 2019.
When the Yates’ planned their U.S trip for April in this year, they incorporated a visit to Crewe VA and carried with them a letter from Councillor Dunlop and a gift of cufflinks in a bid to further strengthen the bond between the two towns.
In return, Crewe VA presented the visitors with a Town of Crewe flag and letter of proclamation, which have been safely delivered to the Crewe Town Council offices today.
Diane Yates commented: “We were made to feel very welcome by the representatives of the town in Crewe, Virginia and it was an amazing experience to be able to visit their town.”
Councillor Dunlop stated: “On behalf of Crewe, it has been an absolute pleasure to receive these gifts from across the pond. This kind gift demonstrates the accord between our towns and we look forward to continuing to develop our relationship in the future.”
The visit has also been reported on by The Courier Record in the US.
