More than 20 members of the Hailsham and District Twinning Association, along with eight young people from Hailsham Youth Council, visited twinned town Gournay en Bray.
The group attended the town’s St Clair Festival where there were dancers, bands, and floats.
The association joined in the fun dressing as sailors for the event.
Keith Townsend, Chair of the association, said: “We are thrilled that the youth council have developed such a keen interest in twinning and appreciate the benefits gained from meeting other young people from France and Germany. They are planning to encourage other Hailsham youth to join in twinning activities including exchanges and visits to other countries.”
