Do you Skype? We do -- and are enjoying a lot of on screen planning with our friends in Chesterfield. Henricus is the settlement where Pocahontas was taken to when she was kidnapped, where she became a Christian and where she met John Rolfe.
Today the location has been recreated with its settler houses and native American long houses where educators take you back to the 17th Century. The history of our two countries are intertwined and especially so for Gravesend through the Pocahontas story. Together we are bringing people together.
Town twinning has been part of the life of Gravesham for over 25 years. Families that have met through Gravesham Town Twinning Association are now firm friends - both in Europe and, more recently, across the Atlantic in Virginia, USA and in India.
Gravesham Town Twinning Association is a group of people committed to seeing that the links between peoples continue to flourish.
We hope you like our web site. You can go and discover more about our partners by visiting their pages and reading about our visits.
Come town twinning!
Our twinners have a regular Wednesday gathering at the Spotlites cafe in The Woodville, Gravesend. On the second Wednesday of each month from 11am to 1pm. Look out for our sail flag and come and join in.
We want more new members and especially those who can host our visitors. You can be involved -- come and join us and then share in the twinning, visiting and hosting.
We look forward to welcoming our friends from Cambrai in September. There will be 17 visitors hosted with our members and as well as travelling around they will be visiting the new Kuflink Stadium, home of Ebbsfleet United FC.
In the town square of Cambrai are gathered those to remember the First World War Battle of Cambrai a hundred years before.
