FRENCH visitors from Penzance's twin town visited west Cornwall to take part in the Golowan celebrations.

A group of five visitors from Concarneau were entertained by members of the town council and of the Penzance/Concarneau Twinning Association throughout their trip.

They enjoyed a visit to St Ives and took in the Mazey Eve fireworks before walking through the streets of Penzance in not one but two parades the following day.

Also enjoying the sights and sounds of Mazey Day were a group of 18 schoolchildren from Concarneau who have spent some of their trip improving their English at Humphry Davy School and Mounts Bay Academy.

    Will someone kindly explain to me how the process of twinning has any beneficiaries other that those councillors who enjoy a free trip abroad at the expense of the taxpayers? I can see no benefit at all to those who pay the bills for these jollies.
