Millau Twinning Association
The East Riding's twinning links with Bad Salzuflen provided the starting point for the twinning with Millau, when Mayor Councillor Margaret Chapman was in Bad Salzuflen at the same time as the Mayor of Millau. Millau and Bad Salzuflen had been twinned for many years and this meeting was to be the spark which ignited the interest in twinning Bridlington with Millau.
In 1990, a small group of interested people which included Margaret Chapman, Bob Owen and Bill Ellyard, three of the major figures in the early days of the twinning arrangements in Millau, made the first step towards a twinning agreement with Millau. This visit was to set the scene for what was to follow.
Eager to capitalise on this early visit, the current chairman, Chris Myers, organised a meeting for all interested parties who would be interested in taking part in a trip to celebrate the signing of the twinning agreement between the two towns. This meeting was attended by over 90 people and, surprised by the interest, the first trip was born.
