Walled Towns Friendship Circle - Five Towns Link: Beaumaris, Caernarfon, Chester, Conwy, Denbigh

Archive Collection

Scope and Content

The Towns link was originally formed in the early 1990s when four towns (Caernarfon, Chester, Conwy and Denbigh) became individual members of the Walled Towns Friendship Circle. In July 1993 a ceremony took place at Caernarfon Castle, where the four Mayors signed a Charter of Co-operation to work together for the joint benefit of all four communities. In 2002 Beaumaris joined as a fifth member.

Since its formation the group meet four or five times a year in Conwy to plan and arrange joint ventures, including joint promotional leaflets, cultural events, sporting events, economic co-operation in Euro funding bids and promotional work.
