Twin Town Visitors To Dorchester

Dorchester Town Centre

12:00am 24th August 2014

Dorchester will be welcoming some very special guests next month.

Families from the County Town's twin town of Bayeux in France will be visiting from four days from the 12th September.

Anthony Thorpe is from the Dorchester Bayeux Society and said Dorset and Bayeux have an historical link;

"The Dorset regiment were responsible for freeing Bayeux from the Nazis on the 7th June, 1944. And Bayeux was the very first French town to be liberated and for a few weeks become the capital of free France."

The visit will include a trip to The Keep Military Museum and a walking tour of Dorchester.
