  • encourage visits by individuals and groups of all ages to and from its twin and friendship towns and to broaden the mutual understanding of the cultural, recreational, educational and commercial activities between the link towns
  • promote and support the Council’s sustainable community strategy and partnerships by working together to create a great future for Cheltenham
