Restormel borough Council signed a Twinning Charter Agreement and Oath with Kreis Dithmarschen in the Schleswig Holstein Region of NW Germany in 1990.   The Charter declares the desire of both The Borough of Restormel and The Kreis Dithmarschen
  • TO establish and maintain friendly relations with each other
  • TO foster and develop mutual understanding and respect between the people of the two localities
  • TO encourage and assist youth and adult organisations, clubs, Companies, groups and all classes of persons to communicate and exchange visits with each other, thereby developing human and cultural relations and establishing a firm foundation for future understanding, respect and friendship between the people of Restormel and the people of Dithmarschen for all time.


Dithmarschen is an area to the North West of Germany. It holds a North Sea coastline, banks the river Eider to its north, and the River Elbe to the south. The Kiel canal to the east means it is almost entirely surrounded by water, a little like Cornwall, though the area is very flat, consisting of reclaimed land from the sea, similar to

that of Holland and part of East Anglia.   Agriculture, fishing and tourism are however very important industries in Dithmarschen as in Restormel.    Once a year the people of Dithmarschen and the people of Restormel cross borders to meet up, participate in their chosen activity or special interest and generally get to know each other better.  Twinning is based on a reciprocal hosting basis, so people get to stay within the homes of like-minded people from the twin Borough.   Such international friendships are thanks to the phenomenon of Twinning.


Following the Charter signings in 1990, the Annual Twinning exchange weeks were administered by the Borough Council.   However, following the successful 10th exchange week an agreement between the Council, Clubs and Organisation representatives and individuals, was reached that a Twinning Association be formed from within the community with the Mayor of the Borough of Restormel as its President. The Association’s Constitution also allows for two Borough Councillors to sit on the Committee alongside 9 elected representatives from clubs and organisations.
