St Paul du Bols

sanit paul du boisSt Paul Du Bols - Kidsgrove Twinned Town

Kidsgrove Town Council made the effort in the 1990's to twin Kidsgrove with St Paul Du Bols in France. Some people have been sceptical about the actual relevance of this twinning of Kidsgorve and St Paul Du Bols, as the towns are not really that comparable. There is also the issue that many residents of Kidsgrove and St Paul Du Bols are totally unaware of such twinning.

More recently we have seen local parties go out to visit St Paul Du Bols and as you enter Kidsgrove from the North and South of the A50 you will see a stone placed at the side of the road advertising this twinning.
