In 2010 a visit to Neyland began the start of a wonderful friendship between Neyland and Sanguinet which is a town in the Landes department in Aquitaine in south-western France.

On March 2 2013, the Mayor Cllr Mrs Maureen Molyneux and her Consort Cllr Aden Brinn visited Sanguinet (Landes, Aquitaine – France) to officially twin Neyland with France.

In April 2014 the Mayor held a reciprocal visit of an official delegation from Sanguinet which included the Sanguinet Mayor.

Sadly Covid 19 has prevented any recent twinning contact between the two towns.   It is hoped to reinstate the relationship in the future.
