A list of towns/cities which our local authority have been twinned with since 1920 together with the dates when these started and ceased.

 

RESPONSE

I can advise you that there have only ever been two twinning links and these are as follows:

•             Scarborough Borough has a twinning link with Osterode am Harz in Germany.  The Twinning Agreement was signed on 4 March 1988 and is still active.

•             Scarborough Town has a twinning link with Cahir in Southern Ireland.  The Twinning Agreement was signed on 4 September 2003 and is still active.

Very few celebratory events are held, however, there are active but less formal Friends Group linkages with both towns, which include members of the local communities of Scarborough, Osterode and Cahir.
