Halle (pronounced Hal in French) is a city in the Belgian province of Flemish Brabant and is on the Flemish side of the language border that separates Flanders and Wallonia. So, the main language that 41ers and Round Tablers from Halle speak is Flemish - thank goodness they also speak English!!
It all started in May 1964 when eight Round Tablers from Halle (four with their wives) visited Market Harborough and as the original Round Table minutes say “The Saturday evening May 16th will take the form of a Dinner and Dance at Springfield Lodge (price 15/-)”.
The programme and Market Harborough Round Table Chairman's speech for a twinning meeting in the 70s are shown below
We celebrated our 50th anniversary of twinning in 2014 with a party taking us back to the 60s - some of the photographs below are from that party!
