Sheringham is twinned with two other communities, Otterndorf in Saxony, Germany and Muzillac in Brittany, France.
Otterndorf Twinning Association
The Sheringham – Otterndorf Twinning Association came into being following extensive enquiries by both Sheringham and Otterndorf Town Councils to find a suitable partner town with which to enter into a twinning partnership. Having established the suitability of the two towns to twin, Sheringham Town Council called a series of public meetings and at the last of them on 9th March 1987, the Sheringham – Otterndorf Twinning Association was formally elected.
The Twinning document was formally signed by the representative of both towns at official ceremonies, first at Otterndorf on 25th October 1987 and then in Sheringham on 14th April 1988.

Muzillac Twinning Association
The aim of Sheringham-Muzillac Twinning Association is to bring the two peoples of Sheringham and Muzillac closer together, to forge friendships and understanding between the two towns and to explore cultural similarities. Sheringham and the surrounding area is ‘twinned’ with the charming community of Muzillac, which draws members not only from that town but from the many smaller towns and villages which lie close by on the South East coast of Brittany.
Since forming in 2004, members of both the French and English sides of the association have exchanged visits—we go there in odd numbered years and they reciprocate in even numbered years. We have been officially recognised by Sheringham council since 2015 but are nevertheless independent and self-financing. Our fund-raisers and other social events are always well attended and great fun, and this year, for example, a party of local ramblers will go to Muzillac in October to walk in the French countryside with their Breton counterparts.
Membership is just £7 for 2016. To join, just contact Julia Hurlbut (Chair) by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone Keith Harvey (Publicity) on 07795691901.
