​Sister Cities trip branded a success

Sister Cities trip branded a success

Several residents from Mansfield, Notts have returned from a trip to Mansfield, Pennsylvania in the USA, as part of the Sister Cities Association group.

The trip was attended by Mansfield’s executive mayor, Kate Allsop, along with fellow District Councillors and dignitaries from around the area.

The aim of the trip was to strengthen the bond between all 40 of the Mansfields across the globe, with representatives coming from the likes of Mansfield, Ohio and Mansfield, Texas, to the meeting point in Pennsylavania.

The population of Mansfield, PA is just over 3,500- a fraction of the population in Mansfield, Notts. However, people who visited the small town were impressed by what it had to offer.

They were taken for tours around the university campus situated in the town, and during the university semesters, the population of the town doubles in size.

Councillor Stewart Rickersey said: “I suspect there will be relationships being set up between West Notts College, and their university. Also there’s a number of smaller initiatives which I suspect will see the light of day.”

“I’m pretty confident that by the middle of next Summer, there will be one specific thing that has come out of the trip that will benefit the whole of the Mansfield community here.”

A concert will take place this Saturday (15th October) to celebrate the Sister Cities Association at the Queen Elizabeth's Academy.

It will feature the  the Mansfield & District Male Voice Choir, The Singers (a local girls choir) and The Gentlemen, a group of nine male singers who sing accompanied and acapella pieces.
