(2)    Dutch Twin Club  - RC Twenterand                                                              

After we had enjoyed greeting a small group of visitors from The Netherlands who helped us in celebrating our 40th Anniversary over the weekend 12th - 14th June 2015, the decision on the club's future relationship with RC Twenterand is still being mutually discussed by both clubs. 

What we do in the future is under discussion - in the Spring 2017, a group of ingatestone Rotary club members enjoyed a very pleasant visit to Keukenhoff, staying in an hotel with many from Vriezenveen staying at a camper site locally - our visitors were royally entertained by our Netherlands twin club mebers.
