Twinning of St Peter Port with Masnieres announced
September 20, 2019
The Royal Guernsey Light Infantry Charitable Trust is delighted to have announced that the capital town of Guernsey, St Peter Port and the parent town of the site of The Battle of Les Rues Vertes, Masnieres in the Region Nord in France have agreed to twin on the anniversary of the Battle in 2019.
'This is something the the Constables and Douzaine felt very strongly about and we wanted to get behind Chris and Colin's initiative' said Senior St Peter Port Constable, Mr Dennis Le Moignan.
'It has the sort of positive impact we should be making, not just around our cuulturalheritage but to remember the men and the families all over our island who suffered great loss and the connection with 'Guernsey's Finest Hour'. I am pleased to say the Douzaine understood this idea from the start, it's about making an active link between our two communities and investing in beneficial relationships from the events that impacted our joint histories'
