Leek Twinning trip to 'Este in Fiore' April 2016

In April a party of people left Leek to visit Este our twin town in Italy

They were visiting on the weekend of the town festival  'Este in Fiore 2016' where the town and castle grounds are full of hundreds of flowers.
  Several of the party had visited Este on a number of occasions before and renewed friendships they had made with people who had visited Leek.
  For Tony & Barbara Wood it was their first time in Este, although they had hosted visitors in Leek on several occasions.  For 10 year old Bethany, this was a whole new experience.  She had been allowed time from school to experience time living with an Italian family.  Bethany was accompanied by her grandmother.
  Apart from the flower festival the twinning committee in Este had planned a very busy time for the group, which included visits to Venice, Padua.
  A good time was had by all.
