a twinning association has bid ‘adieu’ to its chairman of 12 years.

Martyn Moss stepped down from the role with Matlock and Eaubonne Twinning Association (META), which he held between 1999 and 2011.

During his time with META, Mr Moss has visited Eaubonne, which lies just outside of Paris, six times and has organised numerous events to help raise its profile in the community.

He handed the baton over at the association’s annual general meeting to Kath Wood - the new chairman.

Members at the meeting thanked Mr Moss and wished him success in the future.

Mrs Wood said: “We are sorry to see him go.

“He’s done a good job for a number of years and he’s be a hard act to follow.

“Hopefully we will be able to carry on doing the good work and get some new members and make the twinning association successful.”

META is organising another visit to Eaubonne for June this year.

Further information on the organisation is available by calling Mrs Wood on 01629 582339.
