Backnang Strassenfest

Chelmsford is twinned with Backnang in Germany and Annonay in France. 

The Town Twinning Association is a voluntary organisation set-up to provide link with its twinned towns.

In June 2010 we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of the twinning with Annonay and the 20th Anniversary of the twinning with Backnang in Chelmsford (click here to view our 2010 celebrations).

In 2012 the CTTA celebrated the Olympics (click here to view).

Important Announcement

The association has collected quite a lot of recorded material over the past decades and much of this has now been passed over to the Essex Records Office. Do you have any material concerning town twinning in Chelmsford, particularly relating to the early years? If you do and you think it might be suitable for storage by the Records Office, please contact Liz who will be happy to arrange for it to be passed on if appropriate. The association’s official records are complete but a wealth of other material such as newspaper cuttings, photographs and reports of exchanges may not be in the public domain. These could well be of historical interest and useful to anyone researching town twinning, now and in the future. Your help with maintaining the story of twinning in Chelmsford will be much appreciated.
