Whitworth and Kandel became twinned in 1966. At a ceremony in Kandel on 6 August 1966, the Twinning Charter was formally signed by the Chairman of the Whitworth Urban District Council, Councillor Frank W Walker, and the Burgermeister of Kandel, Herr Oskar Böhm. Whitworth Swimming Club has organised and participated in a number of exchange visits with Kandel giving our swimmers the opportunity to experience life in the twin town and EEC neighbouring country. Many friendships have been forged over the years and the formation of this website is key to maintaining our links with Kandel. Pease see some of the photographs of the Kandel exchange kindly donated, names next to albums.
