Visit to Stampersgat

A group of 32 people including 4 of Cheltenham’s Aldermen, visited our Dutch friendship link town of Stampersgat from 2-5 June to mark the 40th anniversary of the first visit of a group of Stampersgat residents to Cheltenham in 1971.

The link was established by the Gloucestershire Regiment who liberated this small town and where Corporal Dennis Lee is buried in the church there. Now organised by the Stampersgat / Cheltenham Friendship link committee, a programme of events was planned for the group, who all stayed with families.
