In August 2021, the Clerk of Ambleteuse approached Elham Parish Council to discuss the opportunity of twinning with Elham. Ambleteuse in Northern France is located 9 km from Boulogne-Sur-Mer on the protected site of “Deux Caps” and the Caps et Marais d’Opale natural park. It has unique charm and architecture and is in proximity to some of the most beautiful sites in the region. Its demographics are like those of our own village.
Elham Parish Councillors were invited by the Mayor of Ambleteuse to visit him to see the region and meet his Councillors. Owing to travel restrictions and prior commitments, this was unable to take place until the 18th of August 2022.
Elham Parish Councillors received a very warm welcome from the people of Ambleteuse. There followed a tour of the area and a very informative meeting to further discuss the twinning concept and the similarities and connections between the two areas.
The Mayor of Ambleteuse and his Councillors have subsequently been invited to make a visit to Elham on Thursday 13th October.
