Bruschal, Germany

Twinned with the town of Bruschal in Germany. The Twinning Partnership was signed in October 1979 and excellent links have been built up over the years. Long-held friendships have been established at individual, organisational and other levels. Delegations visit each other from time to time and the Friends of Bruchsal Society [and the Friends of Cwmbran, in Bruchsal] forge and encourage links at sporting, cultural and social levels. The Community Councils of Cwmbran and Croesyceiliog & Llanyrafon work together at a Civic level. From time to time Stadt Bruchsal organises a trade exhibition at which Cwmbran, as one of Bruchsal’s twin towns, has been represented.

Our new Bookshelter - Europaplatz

Last week we inaugurated the red telephone box, a gift from Cwmbran in the 1980s, as a new bookshelf on Europplatz. Foreign-language books can be placed there and also taken away. During the inauguration, the Lord Mayor reminded everyone once again of the town twinning with Cwmbran and how the telephone box came to Bruchsal. You can find this event also on Facebook under Stadt Bruchsal.
