For 30 years, it has provided a bridge between two towns separated by the North Sea.

And now a group from Sheringham is planning a visit to Otterndorf in Germany to mark the anniversary of the towns' twinning association.

Members of the Sheringham-Otterndorf Twinning Association will go to Otterndorf - which is near Hamburg on the North Sea coast - at the end of August for a five-night stay.

The group will be joined by two members from the Lions Club, who hope to start a partnership with the Lions in Otterndorf.

Otterndorf's Bürgermeister (mayor) came to Sheringham earlier in June to take part in the Poppyline Marathon and met his Sheringham counterpart, Madeleine Ashcroft.
