European Diploma awarded to the
   Verwood & 3 Legged X Twinning Association  
on the 22nd June 2005.


The European Diploma is awarded by the Council of Europe for "promoting friendship between people in Europe". The application from the Twinning Association was made to Strasbourg in June 2004 by Catherina Green and Verwood's mayor. Each year 30 Diplomas are awarded and the European Diploma is the first award a town can achieve. 

The Committee is very proud of the fact that the work Verwood has done in promoting the friendship between people in Europe has been recognised. This was a great honour as hardly any other towns in the UK had been given this honour. 

Unfortunately neither the Mayor nor any Verwood town councillor felt able to attend and so a small group of Twinning Committee members went to Strasbourg (see photo courtesy of H Green). The presentation was on the 22nd June 2005, at the "Palais de l'Europe", along with representatives of twinning towns from Austria, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Montenegro, UK and the Ukraine. The official handing over of the European Diploma took place in the Verwood Council Offices, to the Mayor, on the 24th of June 2005.

The next goal for the "Verwood & 3 Legged X Twinning Association" is the European Flag of Honour.
