    Dear Sir\\ Madam
    I I am a Councillor for Keighley Town Council and am engaged in the 100 year anniversary of the end of hostilities in 1918 of the great war. As part this it is hoped that the rekindling of what is widely recognized as the first twinning of its type in the world will be achieved.
    Everything is very much in the planning stages as yet but we hope to engage with the Schools and to erect a permanent obelisk in the Town Hall Square. This short film would be an absolute gem to show the children of the town and no doubt any visiting dignitaries from Poix Du Nord and I am therefore asking how and if this can be achieved I can be contacted on pcorkindale@msn.com or cllr.corkindale@keghley.gov.uk or 07768983190
    Regards
    Cllr Peter Corkindale
