There have been links between Pendle and the Palestinian village of Beit Leed for some five years. Links have included visits in both directions. In December 2012, Pendle Council decided to formalise the link. For more information contact

Volunteers and student visit
Pendle Beit Leed group has made a friendship link within Britain! Specifically with CADFA, a human rights charity based in Camden, with its own partner in Abu Dis, Palestine.
This year this is likely to mean for Pendle that
* Palestinian volunteers working with CADFA will come to Pendle to help with the twinning links (watch this blog develop!)
* A student visit from Palestine now being arranged with CADFA will bring some students from Beit Leed or the An Najah University, and the group will come to Pendle in the first part of their visit.
Lots more exciting things should follow... watch this space!
