Polegate Twinning Association was formed in 1981 following the East Sussex County Council’s decision to have links with the district of Kreis Pinneberg (near Hamburg) in Germany. Polegate was the first to seize the opportunity, twinning with Appen.

In 1991 Polegate also twinned with Saintry-sur-Seine, a small town in the Isle-de-France region of France close by Corbeil-Essonnes, South of Paris, on the Seine. Town Twinning’s primary aim is to promote international friendship.
